The non-profit will recognize Dr. Saundra Barnett-Reyes and Dr. Sharon Brangman, at its Dec.3 banquet at the Holiday Inn Convention Center, on Electronics Parkway, in Salina. Two other honorees will be announced at a later date. The theme is “Setting New Standards in Health & Wellness.”
Barnett-Reyes, a psychiatrist, runs a private practice and is a clinical supervisor at Upstate Medical Center, according to a news release. She also teachers at a regional chemical abuse program for mentally ill and is a member of the Onondaga County Child Abuse Council.
Brangman, a professor of medicine at Upstate, in June became president of the American Geriatrics Society. She also serves as chief of the Division of Geriatrics, and director of the Central New York Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center at Upstate Medical University, according to a profile on the university’s website.
The group was founded in 2007 to help mentor boys at Syracuse’s Fowler High School, Blodgett School and Hughes Elementary School, as well as its own “Manhood Training Academy,” according to a news release. The group also supports other initiatives, from SAT prep classes to health and wellness programs.
