Bernard Camins, MD, MSCR, former faculty member, participates in the coin toss for the men’s singles match on Pride Day at the 2021 US Open

Rainbow flags flew proudly at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 1 as the USTA celebrated and welcomed the LGBTQ+ community to the first-ever Open Pride Day during the main draw of the 2021 US Open.

It’s been an exciting start of the #USOpen for Dr. Bernard Camins, an infectious diseases specialist and Medical Director for Infection Prevention at Mount Sinai.  Mount Sinai is the Official Hospital of the US Open and the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Eastern Section. Their partnership with the USTA also includes the U.S. Women’s Fed Cup team and the U.S. Men’s Davis Cup team.
