Adam Yarmolinsky Medal



The Adam Yarmolinsky Medal is awarded to a member of the National Academy of Medicine from a discipline outside the health and medical sciences — for example, from fields such as the social and behavioral sciences, law, public policy, and administration. Eligible nominees do not include those who have a health professional degree. It recognizes distinguished service by a member who, over a significant period of time, has contributed in multiple ways to the mission of the NAM. The Adam Yarmolinsky Medal was not conferred in 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2021.
