American Medical Women's Association honors Dr. Marianne Legato with 2002 Women in Science Award

Marianne J. Legato, M.D., F.A.C.P., has received the 2002 Woman in Science Award from the American Medical Womens Association (AMWA). The award, sponsored by Wyeth-Ayerst Laboratories, is presented to a woman physician who has made exceptional contributions to medical science, especially in womens health, through her basic and/or clinical research, her publications, and leadership in her field.

The award was presented to Dr. Legato by Dr. Clarita Herrera, president of the American Medical Womens Association, at AMWAs annual meeting Feb. 1 in San Antonio. The impossible in todays medicine may be the reality of tomorrow in part due to the work of our Woman in Science Award recipient for 2002, Dr. Herrera said. Dr. Legatos concern for humankind and her dedication to medicine brought about her achievements in medicine.

I am deeply honored to have been chosen for this award by the American Medical Womens Association, said Dr. Legato. The work we are doing at the Partnership for Womens Health and publishing in our peer-reviewed and indexed Journal of Gender-Specific Medicine is aimed at showing the relevance of gender to normal human function and the unique ways in which men and women experience disease. As a consequence of all we have learned about womens health, we are reconsidering and revising our essentially male models of health and illness. This award is a gratifying recognition of the importance of this new look at how we should be practicing medicine.

Dr. Legato is professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons and founder and director of the Partnership for Womens Health at Columbia University. Founded in 1997, the Partnership is the first collaboration between academic medicine and the private sector focused solely on gender-specific medicine: the science of how normal human biology differs b
