Assistant Commissioner for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Dr. Aletha Maybank MD, MPH, is honored as one of Network Journal's "40 Under Forty
On Thursday, June 28, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square, Manhattan, Dr. Aletha Maybank will receive the Network Journal's prestigious "40 Under Forty Achievement" award, an honor given to African-American professionals under 40 years old who are making great strides within their industry and a significant impact on their community.
Dr. Maybank has been the Assistant Commissioner for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene since 2009. She also serves as the Director of the Brooklyn District Public Health Office. She holds a BA from Johns Hopkins University, an MD from Temple University School of Medicine, and an MPH from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. She is Board Certified in both Pediatrics and Preventive Medicine/Public Health.
Dr. Maybank will receive the "40 Under Forty Achievement" award for her local, national, and international efforts in public health and policy development. For several years, Dr. Maybank has worked to dissolve health inequities and barriers to health care for racial and ethnic minorities both domestically and abroad. In 2010, she made two missions to Haiti to provide post-earthquake health care assistance.
This honor is one of many for Dr. Maybank who has previously been recognized for her public health contributions with various awards and honors from several organizations including NV Magazine's Movers and Shakers 2010, the National Coalition of 100 Black Men, EMG Communications, as well as the Hip Hop Loves Foundation. She has also been a television guest doctor on Fox 5's Good Day Street Talk, BET's 106 & Park and NY Public Television's Q&A.
"In public health, we have a wealth of information that is very beneficial to the communities that we serve," says Dr. Maybank. "However, there exists a tremendous gap in knowledge related to knowing this valuable information by our communities. My ultimate vision is to be a powerful 'messenger' through media." The "40 Under Forty" honoree will host Love + Politics II on June 27, 2012 at NYC's exclusive Parlor Lounge. This is the second year for Dr. Maybank's highly successful signature event; an evening of honoring young leaders that use their political power or celebrity to promote awareness for HIV/AIDS.
Dr. Maybank is available for guest appearances, columns on health, and for comments on any health related issues. Her expertise includes preventative health, food and fitness, maternal and child health, cancer, HIV/AIDS, community health, and health inequities.
