2019 PAGNY Research Day

On October 30th, 2019, the PAGNY Health and Research Foundation held its 4th Annual Research Day at the New York Academy of Medicine. The Foundation was proud to provide a showcase for studies and analysis conducted by more than 60 teams of physicians and allied health professionals from across PAGNY-affiliated hospitals. Attendees were able to view research summaries, data, and findings of all chosen projects, ask questions of the researchers, and network with PAGNY physicians, board members, and staff from around the city. After two rounds of review, a board of twelve physician peer reviewers specially honored three projects for their particularly impressive research, with the first place prize going to Dr. Christopher Wu and his team from Harlem Hospital with their project on the use and accuracy of step counter ‘wearables’ under various conditions. All three of the selected teams had the opportunity to present to the entire assembly, who also heard remarks from PAGNY CEO Dr. Luis Marcos, PAGNY’s Chair of the Board of Directors Dr. Bijan Safai, and Vice President and Chief Quality Officer for New York City Health and Hospitals Dr. Eric Wei.
