The Reed Health and Medical Career Night, coordinated by Dr. Allecia McLeod, was a huge success!! The community turned out with over 250 people attending. Students and community members were able to enjoy information from legends in their field, such as renown Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr. Fernandez. Other stars in their field included Dr. Acosta - Emergency Room Physician, Dr.Tique – Pediatrician and Dr. Harper – Medical Director for NYIT. Also attending the event were an inventor, EMT, Physical Therapist, Environmental Specialist, Nurse, Police Officer and the Medical Director from the NASA space program via Skype. The purpose of this event was to inspire and motivate our young people to go into the health/ medical field as a way to help decrease health disparities in the field. It was truly an amazing night!! A big thank you to everyone who helped to make it a huge success!!
