Inspirational grad!

DiamondMartin Diamond, D.O.’62,  is an example of one of our amazing alums.

Dr. Diamond’s passion for serving the underserved stems from his own experiences growing up as one of the few white Jewish kids in his mostly African-American neighborhood.

He continued as an ardent champion of opportunity for the oppressed and persecuted, in the Army, as a practicing D.O. and in his recent role in founding a D.O. school in Harlem.

He is being recognized by the American Osteopathic Association with a Distinguished Service Certificate at the annual AOA Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition in New Orleans.

Read about the medical school in Harlem he helped open from last winter’s alumni magazine.
