New York, N.Y. – Phyllis Bernstein, M.S., CCC-SLP, a Clinic Supervisor at the Touro College School of Health Sciences’ Speech and Hearing Center, was recently honored with a certificate in recognition of her outstanding service, for “Teacher Appreciation Week.”

The certificate was presented last month at the College of Staten Island at an awards ceremony honoring outstanding teachers from across Staten Island, New York.

As a Clinic Supervisor at Touro for the past five years, Mrs. Bernstein has assisted clients with a wide variety of speech, language and hearing disorders at the Touro College Speech and Hearing Center in the M.S.
