Saria Hassan, MD, receives first fellowship honoring Raymond Wong, MD

Saria Hassan, MD, a resident in the YNHH medicine/pediatric program, is the first recipient of the Raymond P. Wong Fellowship Award established by Yale- New Haven Hospital, Yale Medical Board and the New Haven County Medical Association.

A native of Sudan, Dr. Hassan received an international baccalaureate degree from Cairo American College and is a graduate of MIT. She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School. She had worked in Uganda, Sudan and Senegal and with organizations dedicated to improving health and medical education in Sudan and Tanzania.

"Saria Hassan is a truly worthy recipient for the first Ray Wong fellowship," said Karl Insogna, MD, attending endocrinologist and professor of internal medicine, Yale School of Medicine, and director of the fellowship selection committee. "She is a compassionate physician, who is devoted to the care of the underserved."

This summer, she will join the staff of New Haven’s Cornell-Scott Hill Health Center. Currently, Dr. Hassan is the resident director of the Yale Pediatric Global Health Track, which allows residents interested in international health, immigrant health and health inequities to travel to underserved countries and provide health care.

The award is named in memory of Raymond P. Wong, MD, an internist who practiced for 26 years at the Hill Health Center in New Haven. Dr. Wong, whose parents emigrated from China, was born in New London. He received his undergraduate degree from Fordham University and MD from George Washington University. He did his residency at the University of Florida and began his career on an Indian reservation before coming to New Haven. Dr. Wong, who died in 2008, was well known for his commitment to community service
