Morton A. Diamond, M.D., professor and medical director of the NSU College of Allied Health and Nursing’s Physician Assistant Program, has been honored as the Alumnus of the Year by the Cornell University Forensics Society. This Ivy League collegiate organization is one of the largest and most respected groups in the nation.  Students participate in traditional policy debate, in addition to individual events, including extemporaneous speaking, after-dinner and impromptu presentations, and prose interpretation.

Diamond, president of the society in 1958 and former chief of the medical staff at Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, was honored for his five decades of service in patient care, medical administration, and education.

He is the sole author of two medical books, Davis’s PA Exam Review and Medical Insights: From Classroom to Patient. Since joining the NSU faculty, he has presented 53 lectures at state and national medical meetings.  Recent presentations include  “Cardiology Pearls: Primary Care to Specialty Practice;” “Cardiotoxicity of Performance-Enhancing Drugs;” “Defining Cardiomyopathy in Primary Care;” “Sudden Cardiac Death in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy;” and “Importance of Jugular Venous Pressure Assessment in Clinical Diagnosis.”
