“NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is set to be honored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for its innovations in patient-centered health care and community service. The hospital will receive the prestigious Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service for its groundbreaking program, the NewYork-Presbyterian Regional Health Collaborative… The AAMC will also recognize NewYork-Presbyterian for its outreach to Washington Heights-Inwood youth. The hospital pioneered a comprehensive childhood obesity prevention program, Choosing Healthy & Active Lifestyles for Kids (CHALK), which became a model for first lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Active Schools program. “
