Welcome note from Dr. Sarah Marques, NYSCSH Medical Director Consultant

Dear School Medical Directors,

Happy Fall! I am writing to introduce myself as the new consulting physician to the NYS Center for School Health. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with an MD, and MSPH in Maternal and Child Health. I completed my pediatrics residency training at Golisano Children's Hospital in Rochester as well as a Leadership Education in Adolescent Health fellowship. I have practiced general pediatrics with Rochester Regional Health in Rochester for the past 12 years and also worked in in the Rochester City School District as a consulting physician for their school health centers. For the past year, I have been the medical director for Monroe 2 -Orleans BOCES.

I am honored to support your important role as School Medical Director. I know from my own experience that serving as SMD provides an important support to schools and communities and that learning opportunities in this position are plentiful.  All the best for a healthy and happy school year!  Sarah I. Marques MD, MSPH
