The New York Academy Of Medicine Welcomes New Board Chair Dr. Wayne Riley, President Of SUNY …

New York, NY, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) and SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University jointly announced Wayne J. Riley, MD, MPH, MBA, MACP, as Chair of NYAM’s Board of Trustees. Dr. Riley is the 17th president of the Brooklyn-based SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, where he also holds tenured professorships in internal medicine, health policy, and management. Dr. Riley joined the NYAM Board of Trustees in 2017.  

He is the first African American to lead the organization’s board as he succeeds James Flynn, MS, President, Deerfield Management Company LP.

With nearly 175 years of leadership in medical science, advocacy to improve medicine, public health, and disparities in healthcare, NYAM’s mission to attain health equity in pursuit of a healthier New York—and the world—has never been more vital. The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the inequities—furthered by a 400-year legacy of systemic racism—that have created poor health outcomes for millions, many in communities of color. NYAM is responding to this public health crisis with the passion and unique know-how of its longstanding institutional expertise, as well as a commitment to addressing social justice issues to reach health equity. 

Since joining the NYAM board, Dr. Riley’s guidance and leadership have significantly impacted NYAM’s strategic plans, including its new  Action Agenda for Health Equity. Fueled by the current state of health inequities, Dr. Riley’s ongoing contributions and leadership of the Board of NYAM and its partnership with the executive leadership will help lay the groundwork to improve the health and well-being of New Yorkers in the years to come. 

“Dr. Riley’s leadership of the NYAM’s Board of Trustees will enhance and enrich NYAM’s perspectives in our pursuit of disrupting common thinking patterns, changing systems and bolstering the influence of our work to result in meaningful change,” said NYAM President Dr. Judith A. Salerno, MD, MS. “We are fortunate to benefit from his wealth of experience as a top physician, educator, and administrator, and I can think of no one better to head our Board as we continue to pursue our vision of a world where everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy life.”

“I am honored to assume the role of Chairman of the Board of The New York Academy of Medicine,” said Dr. Riley. “At this critical time in New York and our nation, while we deal with a global pandemic, unjustifiable and worrisome distrust of medicine and science, social justice matters, systemic racism, and persistent health disparities—all of which significantly impact communities of color—understanding the intersectionality of where these variables meet begs for viable solutions, and systematic, positive outcomes. NYAM’s voice, advocacy, and leadership remain critically important in affecting positive change, and I look forward to the work we will continue to engage in as a Board and an organization.”

 “We are pleased to congratulate Dr. Riley on his historic appointment as Chairman of NYAM’s Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president, and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian. “Dr. Riley is

‘Still in disbelief!’ Couple welcomes their 2nd set of identical twins

Erin Credo is rarely speechless. But the 33-year-old from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, had no words on March 24. That’s the day she learned she was expecting her second set of identical twins.

“I took a picture of the ultrasound and sent it to my husband,” Erin told TODAY Parents.

Jake Credo was home with their 6-year-old sons, Cooper and Grant.

“He was confused. He wrote back, ‘Is that the boys?’” Erin recalled. “And I was like, ‘Oh no. That is not our boys. That is this pregnancy.”

Dr. Cliff Moore, the maternal fetal medicine physician who oversaw Erin’s pregnancy, was just as shocked.

“Only about 1 in 111,111 pregnancies results in a second set of identical twins,” Moore told TODAY Parents. “To put that in perspective, we deliver approximately 8,000 babies at Woman’s Hospital each year, so we’d only see that about once every 15 years.”

The pregnancy itself came as a big surprise. Erin and Jake struggled for more more than two years to conceive Cooper and Grant.

“We were kind of on the fence about having more because I didn’t want to go through that again,” Erin revealed. “I never in my life thought I’d have four kids. I’m still in disbelief.”

Identical twins, also known as monozygotic twins, account for .4% of all pregnancies, according to Dr. Dave Colombo, division chief of maternal fetal medicine at Spectrum Health in Michigan.

“The chance of having identical twins is pretty consistent across the world. The only thing that seems to increase the risk of having identical twins is using assisted reproductive technologies,” Colombo told TODAY Parents. “The rate of non-identical twins is affected by a mother’s age, race, family and how recently she used birth control.”

Erin’s pregnancy wasn’t without complications — the family contacted COVID-19 in August — but on Sept. 22, the Credos welcomed their second set of identical twins: Lola and Allie.

The girls, who were born at 32 weeks and 3 days gestation, stayed in the hospital for four weeks to gain weight, and came home on Tuesday morning. Each wears a different color nail polish so that Erin and Jake can tell them apart.

Erin can’t wait to watch the bond develop between Lola and Allie.

“Cooper and Grant are always snuggling. The other day Grant fell asleep in our bed and Cooper gave him a kiss on the forehead,” Erin gushed. “The bond between identical twins is unlike any other connection.”
