*Lincoln Received National Award for Improving Local Health Conditions:
In October 2008, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation awarded Lincoln Medical Center's Director of Community Health Education and Outreach with the 2008 Community Health Leaders Award for implementing the Taxi and Limousine Health Screening Program, an initiative that provides free health screenings for hundreds of taxi drivers where they work (South Bronx and East Harlem communities). Lincoln's unique program was one of ten to receive this national recognition which included 800 nominations considered from across the United States. The Foundation's award consisted $105,000 to support this initiative.
