The announcement of this year's inductees was made at the IOM's annual meeting in October.
"It is an extraordinary honor to join this august group, and to participate in critical dialogues that can fundamentally shape and improve the health of the public," said Dean Fulmer. "The Institute of Medicine is a highly recognized national resource; I look forward to serving on IOM committees that will impact global healthcare issues."
"Everyone at the NYU College of Dentistry is overjoyed at the announcement of Dean Fulmer's election as a member of the IOM," said Dean Bertolami. "This is one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and appropriate recognition of Terry's stature in the healthcare community and her commitment to service. We are immensely proud of her achievement and confident that she will bring great honor to her new role as a member of the IOM, just as she has done as Dean of the College of Nursing and our partner in the dentistry/nursing enterprise at NYU."
