Dr. Lowenstein was presented with a Milton W. Hamolsky Junior Faculty Scientific Presentation Award for her paper, “Exploring Patient Perspectives on Low-Threshold Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder.”

A U.S. professional society whose 3,300 members are engaged in internal medicine research and teaching, SGIM is publisher of the Journal of General Internal Medicine. The annual awards are endowed by the Zlinkoff Fund for Medical Education.

It was the second year in a row that Lowenstein’s work was recognized with a SGIM award. Last year, she received an Outstanding Abstract Award for the paper, “Sustained Implementation of a Multi-Component Strategy to Increase Emergency Department-Initiated Interventions for Opioid Use Disorder.”

A general internist and addiction medicine physician, Lowenstein’s research focuses on novel strategies for implementing evidence-based treatment and harm reduction interventions for opioid and other substance use disorders.
