Dr. Josyann Abisaab was recently presented with an award “for devoting 20 years to helping establish and nurture Emergency Medicine as a clinical and academic specialty.”  This is not the first time the MD has received an award for her dedication and services.  In 2009 Abisaab was likewise awarded a citation for two decades of service in medicine.  This was connected to her work at Weill Cornell Medical College and at that time, the college’s dean, Dean Gotto, was pictured with her at the ceremony.  In June 2010 however, the award was presented at the New York Presbyterian Residency Graduation Ceremony.
