Mentor of the Year Honor

Mentor of the Year Honor

Juan Robles, M.D. ’11, has received the National Mentor of the Year Award from the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA) for his efforts to support Bronx students who are pursuing healthcare careers and to create a more inclusive workforce dedicated to underserved communities.

Dr. Robles is an assistant professor of family and social medicine at Einstein, a primary- care physician at Montefiore, and co-founder of the Bronx Community Health Leaders, a peer-support group for college and postcollege students who are underrepresented in medicine. The organization facilitates networking, provides guidance and mentoring, engages in community service, and helps develop the leadership skills essential to becoming a healthcare provider.

In choosing Dr. Robles for the award, which was given virtually in March, the LMSA’s national board of directors stated that it was “inspired by his outstanding mentorship” and “the impact that he has had on the lives and trajectories of so many trainees.”
