Mental Health and Well Being

David Edelman, Research Assistant at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and in the Motor Performance Laboratory

We work to improve the mental health and wellbeing of CUIMC students and the faculty and staff at NYP by partnering with the CUIMC Center for Student Wellness, the CUIMC Mental Health Service, and the NYP Employee Wellness Team on initiatives such as Hero Meals (providing meals to NYP faculty and staff on the front lines of the COVID epidemic), Come From Care (a collaborative project with the cast of Broadway’s Come From Away to thank those on the frontlines with messages of gratitude from students), a student wellness resource guide, and Narrative Medicine projects.
