Dr. Stamatos: For me, the most exciting part of leadership at the College is the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the most intelligent and creative people in medicine. It is such a pleasure to find the same passion and energy for our field in all volunteer members. Every single one of my accomplishments with the College has helped me grow both personally and professionally. I look forward to advocating for the strength and value of all ARP members and I truly believe that our diverse membership helps to strengthen the College and ultimately leads to improved care for all our patients. I look forward to working on growing our membership through member engagement, education, advocacy and leadership development in the coming year.
TR: What is something that ARP members might not know about you and your life outside of work?
Dr. Stamatos: I am incredibly fortunate to have a supportive family—my husband and daughter do all the cooking and I have someone clean the house every week. When home, I can either work or play … it’s perfect! I love my work, but I also really enjoy being off and spending time with family and friends and taking time for myself to read and enjoy the outdoors. I absolutely love spending time walking and running in the woods of Long Island. My favorite hobby is photography, and I am looking forward to one day having time to truly develop as an artist. For now, I try to hone my art by taking an image of something that brings me joy every day. These pictures are all part of my Master Balance album that scrolls through my screensaver all day. This is where I find peace in this crazy world.
