From the President

Last month, we hosted our 47th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC. We had record attendance this year, and I enjoyed reconnecting with many of our members, whose dedication to improving the health of our nation continues to inspire me. 

This year's scientific program, titled “Developmental Neurosciences: Do We Know Enough to Prevent or Reverse Major Behavioral Disorders?,” was a fascinating exploration of the underlying biology of disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar, anxiety, autism, addiction, and more, as well as existing medical and social interventions and promising developments on the horizon. We were honored to host Dr. Cori Bargmann, Professor at Rockefeller University and recently appointed president of Chan Zuckerberg Science, as our keynote speaker. I encourage you to take a look at Dr. Bargmann's presentation

This year’s President’s Forum on the US Opioid Epidemic was also one of the meeting’s high points. I led an intensive discussion among an expert panel that included Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, Judge Steve Leifman, and US Surgeon General Jerome Adams about the challenges and options before us. It was energizing to see the shared sense of urgency and openness to new solutions among state and federal policy makers and leaders on the front lines of this crisis. 

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend to revitalize for the year ahead. We have a lot of work to do and I look forward to working with many of you as we continue to address critical issues in health and medicine. 

Warmest wishes for a restful holiday season and a healthy and productive new year. 


--Victor J. Dzau, MD
President, National Academy of Medicine

Local Artists Featured in "Visualize Health Equity" Exhibition in Washington, DC

Earlier this month, the NAM hosted its first pop-up art exhibition as part of its Culture of Health program. The exhibition featured artwork from artists around the country to illustrate how communities understand health equity and solutions that promise a brighter, healthier future. 

Thirty pieces of art were selected based on the insight each piece brought to the subject of health equity, as well as artistic impact. The collection included visual and nonvisual art, such as music, creative writing, paintings, drawings, and spoken word. 

Additional artwork was selected to appear in a permanent online gallery, which is now available online. Browse the full gallery here and join our listerv for more updates from the Culture of Health program.

Featured Report from the National Academies

The organ donation and transplantation system strives to honor the gift of donated organs by fully using those organs to save and improve the quality of the lives of their recipients. While most related research to date has focused on improving transplantation processes and health outcomes for recipients, the field of organ donor intervention research looks at ways to enhance the quality and increase the quantity of organs that can be recovered from deceased donors and then successfully transplanted.

With support from an array of organizations, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine assembled an expert panel to examine the ethical, legal, regulatory, policy, and organizational issues related to U.S research involving deceased organ donors. The resulting report offers recommendations for conducting organ donor intervention research in a way that maintains high ethical standards, that ensures dignity and respect for deceased organ donors and their families, that provides transparency and information for transplant candidates who might receive a research organ, and that supports and sustains the public’s trust in the process of organ donation and transplantation.
