Washington, DC, May 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Association of Academic Health Centers (AAHC) is proud to spotlight the crucial work of academic health centers worldwide in facing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Every day during the past year, dedicated academic health center leaders, care providers, and scientists worked unremittingly on the frontlines of this global health crisis and stepped up again and again to meet the pressing challenges of the day.

“These outstanding individuals and institutions responded to extraordinary demands to deliver vital healthcare, develop rapid solutions, sustain the health professions, and meet the needs of both local and national populations,” said AAHC President and CEO, Dr. Steven L. Kanter. “Their responses were critical to surmounting the enormous tasks of this public health crisis.”

Their research leads to advances in prevention, understanding, and treatment of diseases.
