When the Department of Family Medicine assumed responsibility in 2011 for the four School Based Health Centers previously sponsored by The Long Island College Hospital ("LICH"), we welcomed a new colleague into our faculty ranks as well. Dr. Kim Forrester-Dumont, whose primary appointment is in the Department of Pediatrics, serves as Medical Director of the School Based Health Centers at P.S. 38, P.S. 142, P.S. 293, and M.S. 51, which are located in northwest Brooklyn in the general vicinity of LICH. Dr. Forrester-Dumont has held this position since July 2010.
Dr. Forrester-Dumont received her medical education at New York College of Osteopathic Medicine of New York Institute of Technology, earning the degree of Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in 2003. She trained as a resident in Pediatrics at SUNY Downstate Medical Center from 2003 to 2006, and she was Chief Resident in Lenox Hill Hospital's pediatric residency program during the 2006-2007 academic year. In 2007, Dr. Forrester-Dumont returned to SUNY Downstate for a Fellowship in Adolescent Medicine.
Dr. Forrester-Dumont has conducted research on obesity and cardiovascular risk factors in African American and Caribbean American adolescent females and polycystic ovarian syndrome and its implications for metabolic syndrome and the hyperandrogen state. Dr. Forrester-Dumont's volunteer involvements have included the Greater New York City YMCA, THEO ("Teens Helping Each Other"), and the health education program of KIPP NYC Charter Middle School.
