Hail to new chief
New York Methodist Hospital welcomed Dr. Edmund Giegerich as the new chief of endocrinology and vice chairman of medicine on July 1. The field of endocrinology is the care and treatment of hormone disorders, including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Dr. Giegerich also suffers from the condition, having been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at age 17. “Learning about the diseases you have is one of the most important steps to recovery,” he said. Standing O thinks the other most important step is to have Dr. Giegerich in your corner.
