The Myra Mahon Patient Resource Center aims to make accurate, science-based health information easily available so that patients and their families can make informed decisions about their care.
Through its collection of online databases, pamphlets and staff, the center aims to live up to its namesake, Myra Mahon (1937-2011), a licensed clinical social worker who believed that “an informed patient is almost always a healthier patient with a better chance for a favorable outcome.” Access to medical information helps patients overcome their fears, she said, while “providing comfort and, many times, acceptance of treatment.”
The MMPRC works collaboratively with the world-class physicians and healthcare providers at Weill Cornell Medicine, who are committed to delivering outstanding primary and specialty care to all patients.
The center opened in February 2007 through generous donations from the Arthur and Myra Mahon Foundation, the Adrian and Jesse Archbold Charitable Trust and the Dean’s Challenge matching funds.
