海伦罗德里格斯特里亚斯诞辰89周年-Helen Rodríguez Trías’ 89th Birthday

今天的Doodle向HelenRodríguezTrías表示敬意,她是一位医生,教育家,并且直言不讳地倡导妇女和儿童的医疗保健权利。

罗德里格斯·特里亚斯于1929年出生于纽约市,与家人一起搬到波多黎各,后来就读于波多黎各大学医学院,以最高荣誉毕业。她的灵感来自于从事医学事业,因为她说,它“将我最喜爱的事物,科学与人物结合起来。”

在将她的练习从波多黎各转移到纽约后,她成为基层努力的坚定支持者,以改善林肯医院在南布朗克斯服务的社区的生活质量,在那里她担任儿科系主任。她制定了帮助受虐待儿童和受艾滋病毒/艾滋病影响的家庭的方案。

随着时间的推移,RodríguezTrias博士在国际范围内扩大了她的努力,不懈地努力改善中南美洲,非洲,亚洲和中东家庭的医疗保健。“我希望在我的一生中能够看到越来越多的人认识到我们是一个世界,”她说道,“除非我们支持每个人的生活质量,否则没有人会有生活质量……不是基于善良主义,但是由于真正的承诺……这是我们的集体和个人健康危在旦夕。“

作为纽约拉丁裔艾滋病委员会的创始人,她成为第一位担任美国公共卫生协会主席的西班牙裔美国女性。2001年,她以总统公民奖章作为“杰出的教育家和公共卫生领域的活跃领导者”而荣幸地获奖。

罗德里格斯·特里亚斯博士生日快乐!

Today’s Doodle pays tribute to Helen Rodríguez Trías, a physician, educator, and outspoken advocate for women and children’s right to healthcare.

Born in New York City on this day in 1929, Rodríguez Trias moved to Puerto Rico with her family and later enrolled in the University of Puerto Rico’s medical school, graduating with highest honors. She was inspired to pursue a career in medicine because, she said, it “combined the things I loved the most, science and people.”

Upon moving her practice from Puerto Rico to NYC, she became a staunch supporter of grassroots efforts to improve the quality of life for the community served by Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx, where she worked as director of the Department of Pediatrics. She developed programs to help abused children and families affected by HIV and AIDS.

Over time Dr. Rodríguez Trias expanded her efforts on an international scale, working tirelessly to improve health care for families in Central and South America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. “I hope I’ll see in my lifetime a growing realization that we are one world,” she said. “No one is going to have quality of life unless we support everyone’s quality of life… Not on a basis of do-goodism, but because of a real commitment…it’s our collective and personal health that’s at stake.”

A founder of the New York Latino Commission on AIDS, she became the first Hispanic American woman to serve as president of the American Public Health Association. In 2001, she was honored her with the Presidential Citizens Medal as an ”outstanding educator and dynamic leader in public health.”

Happy Birthday Dr. Rodríguez Trías!
