Chairman Kurt W. Deuschle, MD records

One strength of this collection is that it spans Dr. Deuschle’s entire career, with some documentation of his Kentucky years, as well as his travels abroad to study and advise on community needs. Naturally, there is also extensive documentation on the Mount Sinai Department of Community Medicine (DCM) but it is spread out into many files and more difficult to piece together. The newsletters and annual reports provide wonderful insights into the goals and efforts of the Department over time. The best way to track the work of particular divisions or areas is to search under the names of the individuals involved. Also, please note that the Archives has a separate series of records for the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Department of Community Medicine, Division of Environmental and Occupational Medicine library items

From its inception, the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine has concentrated on research, as well as providing patient care. The Division’s research has been funded through grants from private and federal sources, as well as by labor unions, which funded projects investigating the health of their workers. Many of the publications here are a result of those grants and contracts. The Library Items series consists primarily of reports created by Division staff on a variety of topics. These include annual reports of grant projects, reports on topics, draft papers, and presentations. These items were given a colored paper cover and were placed in the Division’s library for shared usage.

Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource (HHEAR) Data Center

  • In 2019 the Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource (HHEAR) Data Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai was established by NIEHS as a continuation of the CHEAR Data Center expanding to include health outcomes at all ages. The goal is to provide the research community access to statistical analyses and to make that data publicly available as a means to improve our knowledge of the comprehensive effects of environmental exposures on human health throughout the life course. The HHEAR Data Center goals are to catalyze new scientific insight from the colocation, integration and advanced statistical and data science analysis of multimodal data sets. It provides a data repository for storing epidemiologic and biomarker data for CHEAR and HHEAR research studies, publicly available deidentified datasets downloadable for external users, and a publicly accessible HHEAR ontology that provides a common vocabulary with unambiguous definitions of concepts and variables across studies to allow for pooling of studies.

Michael C. Caldwell, MD papers

  • US AA071
  • Collection
  • 1977-1996

These papers document Michael Caldwell's role in the Student Council of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (1988-90) as well as his role as the Mount Sinai representative to the Organization of Student Representatives (OSR) of the American Association of Medical Colleges (1987-90). While serving on the Council, Caldwell spearheaded a movement to ensure that Mount Sinai became a smoke free environment. The Council passed a resolution, and Caldwell gathered information on making hospitals smoke free. He spoke to the Medical Board and was appointed to an institutional task force to make changes in this area.
These papers provide insights into the concerns of students during this time, as well as Caldwell's own interests in public health. The minutes from the Student Council have been removed to series.
