Dr. Jeanine D’Armiento receives distinguished honor at Columbia University

Jun 7, 2021 | News

Jeanine D’Armiento, MD, PhD, Chair of the Alpha-1 Foundation Board of Directors, has been nominated and selected by the Columbia University Irving Medical Center Academy of Community and Public Service (ACPS) as a member of the ACPS Class of 2021. The ACPS recognizes faculty at Columbia University that have shown exceptional community service efforts and have devoted a significant amount of their careers towards promoting and improving community health in our local community and around the world.

A major focus of Dr. D’Armiento’s research is the study of mechanisms that lead to lung destruction. Dr. D’Armiento’s interest in global health has led to studies in India documenting the direct dangers of biomass exposure on lung function in women exposed through use of traditional cookstoves. Clinically, she runs one of the largest centers in the country for patients suffering from the rare disease, Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) and cares for patients with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency in addition to serving as the Chair of The Board of Directors of the Alpha-1 Foundation. Furthermore, for the past 19 years she has directed the Summer Program for Undergraduate Rising Stars (SPURS) at Columbia University, which is a mentored pipeline training program for students underrepresented in Science and Medicine.

Congratulations to Dr. D’Armiento on this well-deserved honor, we are very fortunate to your leadership at the Alpha-1 Foundation.
