The National Academy of Medicine has appointed Dr. Jacquelyn Taylor, FAAN, FAHA, PhD, PNP-BC, RN, a professor of Health Equity at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, to the National Academy of Medicine for her work in health disparities research among minority populations.

Taylor is one of 100 new members of the National Academy of Medicine, one of the most respected achievements in the health field. Recipients will be employed or funded by a department or agency in hopes of making discoveries that will advance US society.

Taylor’s research is focused on how social factors contribute to health disparities among minorities. Her research on how environmental factors can affect blood pressure among black people has been especially noted.

Taylor tells, “It is a great honor being the only faculty member in the College of Nursing to receive this. The National Academy of Medicine is known for their body of brilliant experts in the field.”

This is not Taylor’s first major achievement. She was also awarded the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers by Barack Obama in 2017.
