June 30, 2023

Dr. Greta Strong, an assistant professor of community outreach teaching in the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine, received the U.S. Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of thousands of hours of volunteer service in the health care education arena.

The distinction is part of the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA), which was established by President George W. Bush to honor civilians who volunteer to serve people in need. The Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award represents the highest level of the PVSA, given to individuals who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime. 

“I had so many conflicting emotions when I learned about this award – I was both humbled and proud,” said Dr. Strong, who joined Weill Cornell Medicine in 1996. “It is one of the highlights of my life professionally and personally to be singled out and recognized by our administration.”

Dr. Strong’s professional and volunteer service spans many areas of health education, engagement and advocacy. At Weill Cornell Medicine, she collaborates with multiple departments to foster community health through outreach and serves on the Dean’s Community Advisory Board, where she maintains relationships with community leaders of numerous civic organizations, with an emphasis on social justice.
