Dr. Eleni Andreopoulou, the Madeline and Stephen Anbinder Clinical Scholar in Hematology/Oncology and an assistant professor of clinical medicine, received the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund’s Award for Excellence on Feb. 14. One of the most prominent charitable Greek organizations in America, the group was founded in 1984 to bring together Greek Orthodox leaders across many fields and to support the work of other community members. Michael Jaharis, a member of the Weill Cornell Board of Overseers, is also a founding member of the fund.
Dr. Anne Moore, a professor in clinical medicine, has won the 2015 Virginia Kneeland Frantz Distinguished Women in Medicine Award from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. This award is presented annually to an alumna who has outstanding career achievements and is named in honor of Dr. Virginia Kneeland Frantz, one of the first six women allowed admission to the previously all-male college. After graduation in 1922, Dr. Krantz went on to become the first woman ever to be accepted into what was then named Presbyterian Hospital’s two-year surgical internship. Dr. Moore received the award during the college’s reunion event on May 8.
Congratulations to Drs. Andreopoulou & Moore for their continued efforts to treat women with breast cancer around the world.
