NYACP Announces the Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP Advocacy Internship

The Chapter is honoring the memory of Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP, former Governor and leader of NYACP who passed late last year, by changing the very popular and educational Advocacy Internship to the “Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP, Advocacy Internship.”

This internship, which began almost 16 years ago, allows between 4 and 6 medical students and residents to spend a month rotating in Albany with our Executive Director researching policy, reviewing proposed legislation, meeting with regulators and legislators and understanding how to best represent patient interests as healthcare policy is formulated. To date we have had 45 students and residents rotate through this program, with 5 more scheduled for 2019. With Steve’s passion for education and advocacy and his years of mentoring students and residents, our Executive Committee felt this would be an appropriate tribute.

Any member may contribute to a fund that has been established to support the “Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP, Advocacy Internship.” You can send a check, payable to New York ACP Services Inc. to 744 Broadway, Albany, NY 12207, attention Linda Lambert with a notation that it is for the Walerstein Advocacy Internship or use this link to make an online contribution with your credit card. Names of all who make a donation in any amount will be listed as supporters.

All who knew Steve will remember his tireless efforts on behalf of our profession and his passion for medicine and teaching. We appreciate your contributions to the Chapter to allow Steve’s spirit to live on.
