Dr. Robert Amler and his wife, Sherlita Amler, M.D., M.S., who is Westchester County’s Commissioner of Public Health and clinical associate professor of pediatrics, adjunct professor of public health and senior fellow for Center for Disaster Medicine, were named Westchester’s Power Couple during the sixth annual Doctors of Distinction award ceremony hosted by Westfair Communications Inc., on September 24 at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle, New York. The Doctors of Distinction awards honor those who have had an influential impact on health care or medical science in Westchester County. “We all work together, whether as clinicians taking good care of individual patients or public health physicians and other public health professionals taking care of communities and preventing disease, hopefully before it occurs,” said Dr. Robert Amler.
