Champions of Change
Dr. William “Bill” Lee is a renowned cardiologist who has shaped one of the most successful programs in the YMCA through his belief that helping new arrivals succeed will be repaid many times over in our society. Bill, a YMCA of Greater New York Board member, was the organizing chair of the International branch of the New York City YMCA, which developed programs such as Global Teens, UN programs and became the incubator and policy body of the Y’s New Americans Welcome Centers. These YMCA programs provide services to almost 100 different ethnicities in New York City.
