The New York City academic medicine and research community includes the largest concentration of talented and experienced researchers, educators, and clinicians in the world. These individuals engage in important biomedical and clinical research that serves to advance the practice of medicine and the overall health of the public.

The Lewis and Jack Rudin New York Prize for Medicine and Health was established to recognize a member of the health care community who has contributed to the health of the New York City community. The award is named for two members of the Rudin family, which has a long tradition of service and philanthropy in New York City. The Rudin Prize was established and first awarded in 2003 and awarded annually for several years thereafter. Beginning in 2011, and with the strong support of the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, the Rudin Prize has been reconfigured to bring attention to and recognize a member of the health care community whose work contributes to the field of preventive care, primary care, and community health.

The awardee delivers a lecture on his or her work at the New York Academy of Medicine and receives the Rudin Prize medal. The awardee also receives a monetary award through a generous contribution to the GNYHA Foundation by the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation.

The award is co-sponsored by GNYHA and the New York Academy of Medicine and is administered by the GNYHA Foundation.
