Stuart Feinstein, MD, has joined Health Quest Medical Practice in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and will head its new Division of Infectious Diseases. In practice since 1985, Dr. Feinstein earned his medical degree from SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, and completed post-graduate work at Montefiore Medical Center and a fellowship in infectious disease at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, both in the Bronx.

Rana A. Hajjeh, MD, FIDSA, director of the Division of Bacterial Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has been named the 2014 Federal Employee of the Year. The award recognizes Dr. Hajjeh’s efforts to lead a global campaign to convince some of the world’s poorest countries to use the Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine to fight bacterial meningitis and pneumonia, an initiative that is estimated will save the lives of 7 million children by 2020. One of several honors presented annually by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service to celebrate excellence in the federal civil service, the award recognizes a federal employee whose professional contributions exemplify the highest attributes of public service.

For her globally recognized work to reduce infections within health care environments, Elaine L. Larson, RN, PhD, FIDSA, has been chosen to receive the 2014 John Stearns Medal for Distinguished Contributions in Clinical Practice from the New York Academy of Medicine. Associate dean for research at Columbia University School of Nursing, Dr. Larson will receive the award at an academy event in November.
