Some things that you didn’t know about Dr. Nudelman
• In addition to his college degree in Biology (he studied Molecular Biology and RNA Tumor Viruses), Dr. Nudelman holds a Doctorate of Medicine, Doctorate of Law. Notwithstanding his growing up in the Bronx and Yonkers, he earned an Associate’s Degree in Animal Science from a two year Ag & Tech school in upstate NY, where he studied Animal Husbandry majoring in horses. • In the mid 1990’s through early 2000’s, he was the publisher of the Georgia Health Care News, Inc., and five other state publications and websites that covered the local health care industry and the business of medicine. The publications won multiple media awards, including one he received personally for Journalistic Excellence in Medical Reporting (1998). • He attended college mostly in upstate New York, beginning at the age of only 16. Due to his young age and high energy level, his guidance counselor reassured his mother that although he may have been Roosevelt High School’s “greatest underachiever”, he’d “find himself” in college. • A former board member of the Georgia First Amendment Foundation, Dr. Nudelman holds a high regard for both the First Amendment guarantee of Freedom of Expression and the Press, transparency in our government. In Georgia the two Acts that apply to most meetings and records are known as the “Sunshine Laws,” which in 2012 underwent their first major revision in more than a decade. These consist of the Open and Public Meetings Act (O.C.G.A. §§ 50-14-1 through 6) and the Open Records Act (O.C.G.A. §§ 50-18-70 through 77). Dr. Nudelman agrees with both Supreme Court Justice Brandeis who once said, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant….” and with Vernon Keenan, director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation "When there is not openness, corruption grows rapidly." • He is from humble beginnings in The Bronx. His Mom Lorraine was raised in Brooklyn during the depression, by a single mother who worked and watched after school by her immigrant Russian and Austrian grandparents. His father Michal barely escaped the Holocaust at the age of 20, coming to America from Poland in 1937, never to see any of his family again. Enlisting in the American Army when WW II broke out, he served four and a half years with great distinction and became highly decorated. Something our family knew nothing about until when in her eighties, Mom sent away for his medals after reading an article about how to do it in the Readers digest. • His sister is a Neuropsychologist, and at one time was the School Psychologist at the Perkins School for the Blind in Boston, and where Helen Keller studied. It was Perkins director Michael Anagnos who sent their graduate Anne Sullivan to teach Helen Keller in Alabama - and with whom Keller returned with to become a student there.
