Welcome and take a seat

Hats off to Dr. Jean Ford for being named the new Chairman of the Department of Medicine at the Brooklyn Hospital Center. Dr. Jean brings with him loads of experience in and out of the board room. For 10 years, Dr. Jean was at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he was an associate professor in the departments of Medicine and Epidemiology, acted as director of the cancer disparities program at the university’s Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, and was the Florence Irving assistant professor of medicine at Columbia University in Manhttan, that other borough, as well as the founder and director of the Harlem Lung Center, also in that other borough. Dr. Jean conducted extensive research on risk factors associated with lung cancer and asthma.

Dr. Richard Becker, CEO and president of the Brooklyn Hospital, is over the moon with this appointment and told Standing O, “We are very fortunate to have recruited someone with his national reputation for excellence in academic and clinical medicine. We are delighted to have him aboard.”

So is Standing O.

The Brooklyn Hospital Center [121 DeKalb Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene (718) 250–8000].
