Dr. Richard Levin joins the advisory board of Telehealth and Medicine Today

The online, peer-reviewed, CME-accredited journal Telehealth and Medicine Today is pleased to welcome Richard I. Levin, MD, CEO and President of The Arnold P. Gold Foundation, to its advisory board.

“We are excited to extend our reach to the NGO community and, more particularly, to our brightest young practitioners in medicine. They will own the legacy we leave them. It is up to us to provide guidance, and borrow their collaborative and compassionate proclivities to create the best care continuum for patients,” stated Tory Cenaj, Publisher. “Students and residents enter healthcare with a natural disposition for innovation. We are honored to welcome this pivotal demographic to our audience.”

“We are delighted to begin a partnership with Telehealth and Medicine Today,” said Dr. Levin. “While many aspects of telemedicine are halfway technologies, its power and potential will be with us forever. As telemedicine evolves from this nascent stage, it is crucial that we maintain the human connection.”

The Gold Foundation advocates for compassionate, collaborative, scientifically excellent care, which research has shown makes a difference in outcomes for patients and physicians.

Dr. Levin pointed to the words of former surgeon general Dr. Vivek Murthy, who spoke at the 2017 Gold Foundation gala: “The world is locked in a struggle between love and fear, and we must tip the scale towards love.” The Gold Foundation exemplifies this approach.

“Compassion and human connection will continue to be critical to excellent care, as telemedicine expands the possibilities for collaboration, innovative delivery and much more in healthcare,” said Dr. Levin.

Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Vice-Principal for Health Affairs at McGill from 2006 to 2011, Dr. Levin is Emeritus Professor of Medicine at both McGill University in Montreal and at New York University where he was also Vice Dean for Education, Faculty and Academic Affairs. Dr. Levin earned a B.S. in Biology with Honors from Yale University and graduated from the NYU School of Medicine where he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha. Dr. Levin is also a member of the editorial board of FASEBJ and has held numerous leadership positions in the U.S. and Canada.
