The Susan M. Coupey, MD Research Fund for Adolescent Medicine

For over a quarter century, the Division of Adolescent Medicine at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) and Albert Einstein College of Medicine has revolutionized healthcare for teens and young adults, aged 13 to 20, in the United States and around the world.

Informed by the latest research, our physicians provide consultations in adolescent gynecology, menstrual disorders, eating disorders and behavioral problems, as well as primary care. Our unrivaled team of physicians, nurses and social workers understands the unique struggles teens face. We do all we can to keep our adolescent patients healthy with compassionate care, practical education and pioneering research.

In February, 2018, Susan M. Coupey, MD, who served as Division Chief for the past 16 years, stepped down from that position. To commemorate Susan’s illustrious career, Dr. Katherine Lobach, Professor Emerita of Pediatrics, provided a generous donation to establish the Susan M. Coupey, MD Research Fund. The purpose of this Fund is to provide our junior faculty and post-doctoral fellows with financial resources to perform innovative and cutting-edge research to further adolescent health.

We ask that you join us to honor the leadership, master teaching, and generous mentorship of Dr. Coupey and ensure the Division’s ability to lead the field of adolescent medicine in the future.

We thank you in advance for your generous support.
