Another PMR graduate – Sara Brenner, MD MPH (2009) - made it to the news in the Capital Region. She was one of seven local honorees who received the Woman of Excellence award. This year’s seven honorees are women of varying ages and professions, and while their areas of work, interests, study and skill are all different, all are smart, hard-working, passionate professionals. Sara was nominated and received the Woman of Excellence award in the emerging professional category.
