MIRSKY--Stanley, M.D. The trustees, faculty and staff of The Mount Sinai Medical Center are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear friend and longtime colleague, Dr. Stanley Mirsky, who died at age 81. Dr. Mirsky completed his residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital in 1959, and joined as an attending physician in 1962. He served as Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Bone Disease. A preeminent diabetologist, Dr. Mirsky dedicated his career to teaching the importance of proper blood sugar control through diet, exercise, and appropriate treatment. He was recognized for his pioneering research, dedication to patient care, and the success of his books aimed at teaching diabetic care to a lay audience. In 2007, Mount Sinai honored Dr. Mirsky by establishing the Annual Stanley Mirsky, MD, Lectureship Award, given to distinguished endocrinologists from around the world. The Mount Sinai community extends its condolences to Dr. Mirsky's family and friends. Peter W. May, Chairman, The Mount Sinai Boards of Trustees Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer, The Mount Sinai Medical Center
