State Senator Hugh T. Farley (R, C, I - Schenectady) had the pleasure of naming Constance Glasgow of Clifton Park as a New York State Senate Woman of Distinction. A ceremony will take place in Albany on May 13th.

“Dr. Glasgow has an extremely busy career, but takes time to volunteer in her community and also to mentor young women who are interested in going in the health care field,” Senator Farley said. “She is a remarkable woman and I am proud to honor her as a Senate Woman of Distinction.”

The Senate's "Women of Distinction" program was created in 1998 to honor New York women who exemplify personal excellence, or whose professional achievements, acts of courage, selflessness, integrity or perseverance serve as an inspiration to all New Yorkers.

Dr. Glasgow has practiced Pediatrics in Clifton Park since 1966, and was the first pediatrician to open a practice in that community. She earned her Doctor of Medicine degree from the State University of New York Health Sciences Center in Brooklyn and completed her residency in Pediatrics at the Albert Einstein University of Medicine-Bronx Municipal Hospital Center.

She is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is an attending physician at Ellis Hospital, the former St. Clare’s Hospital and the former Bellevue Woman’s Hospital, where she has also served as Chief of Newborn Services.

Dr. Glasgow has been recognized nationally and locally for her expertise and dedication as a health care professional. Dr. Glasgow’s many other honors include the Juliet Low Woman of Distinction Award from the Girl Scouts, Mohawk Valley Pathways in 2007, the Jane Golub Award for Excellence in Women’s Healthcare in 2008, the Henry A. Callis Jewel Award for Medicine from the Beta Pi Lambda Alumni Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity in 2009, and a New York State Community Distinction Award in 2012.

Dr. Glasgow served as a Board member of Schuyler Ridge Nursing Home, and is currently a member of the Ethics Committee at Ellis Hospital and the Neonatal Advisory Committee at Bellevue.

She is a former member of the Committee on Special Education Services for the Shenendehowa School District. She also volunteered her services at the Saratoga County Public Health Clinic, at local churches, for the Girl Scouts, and for charitable organizations. She also traveled to China in 1988 with the Tropical Medicine Delegation of the Citizen Ambassador Program.
