The North Shore-LIJ Medical Marvels Program was established in 2013 by The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and the Center for Workforce Readiness. The purpose is to encourage Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) career pathways for Long Island High School Students in 9th and 10th grades. The 2014 competition was the second year of this program. The Medical Marvels program believes in the academic promise of all students and that by investing in their ideas the future health and well being of our community will be served. Further by investing in youth and giving them a sense of place and responsibility for problem solving in the community, a community ensures that it will have bright and capable future leaders for STEM careers.

"This book provides a fascinating overview of the history of modern medicine. With figures ranging in time from the beginnings of medicine with Hippocrates, to the cutting edge of modern discoveries, it's an essential addition to the general interest literature on medical history."Dr. Rosalyn S. Yalow, Nobel Laureate"At a time when bedrock scientific principles like evolution are being challenged anew, it's refreshing and important to read a book which takes as its goal the celebration of science. Medical Marvels is an immensely engrossing survey which makes clear how dramatically scientific understanding has improved our lives. It's also a textbook example of how to write short, entertaining, and informative capsule biographies. For this alone, it should be required reading in all writing programs."Peter Rothberg, Associate Publisher, The Nation
