Congrats to Daniel Paterson on receiving the Maimonides Award from the School of Health Sciences of Touro College! Paterson, who represents the occupational therapy program, received this award for consistently demonstrating compassion, curiosity, integrity and resilience. He held formal student leadership positions while at Touro, and volunteers regularly for additional service and activities. “My passion for the occupational therapy (OT) field grew from my own personal experiences. I was born with Spina Bifida and I had OT from an early age to overcome many challenges. I have some physical limitations and I understand exactly what it’s like to struggle to adapt to physical limitations. I hope to serve as a role model to help children and adolescents overcome challenges and accomplish their vital goals. Receiving this Maimonides Award solidifies my career choice.”
Congrats to our Maimonides Award winner Cailin Petersen of the occupational therapy (OT) program at the School of Health Sciences, who was recognized for her excellent interpersonal communication and leadership skills. Petersen also served in student government and was president of both the Student OT Association and Alpha Pi, the OT Honor Society. “I was drawn to occupational therapy (OT) because of its holistic approach to the human body, enabling us as practitioners to truly make a difference in people’s lives. I’m so proud to be a part of a profession that can aid patients in seeing the light at the end of the tunnel by offering them a plan and assisting them as they move forward to improving their-quality of life. I have also always loved working with children so for me, my dream career would be working at a private practice in a sensory gym.”
Congrats to School of Health Sciences Maimonides Award winner Bhoomi Patel! Patel, a student in the physical therapy program, was selected for continuously seeking ongoing learning opportunities and serving as an engaged presence in classroom discussions. She was noted for placing patients’ needs above self-interest and for striving to learn and grow as a professional. “My passion for physical therapy comes from witnessing my grandpa’s rehabilitation journey, after he had a stroke when I was a teenager. Seeing him take vital steps towards recovery inspired me to join this profession and there is also great personal reward and joy in knowing that I had a key role in improving a patient’s quality of life. My dream career is to be an Acute Care Physical Therapist, and receiving this Maimonides Award is just the first step towards achieving excellence in the healthcare field.”
Congrats to Alexa Walsh, a third-year student at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM), who was named recipient of the 2021 Sullivan 180 Medical Scholarship! This award promotes the practice of medicine in underserved areas by offering tuition assistance to a TouroCOM Middletown student who has demonstrated financial need, outstanding academic work, and dedication to improving the health of the local community. Walsh, a teaching assistant and student ambassador, was awarded the scholarship for her interest in practicing rural medicine in Sullivan County, New York. She will receive a $10,000 grant. “Osteopathic medicine had interested me since the day I began researching it while I was an undergrad. However, it wasn’t until I began my time at Touro that I truly understood osteopathy. We are taught to not only take care of our patients with the utmost respect, but also to respect and help our classmates and community members in the Middletown area. I’m native to Orange County, so I’m very happy to have been given the opportunity to learn clinical skills at Garnet Health Medical Center. This experience has only heightened my excitement to one day give back to the community by practicing in the Orange and Sullivan areas that have helped me become the person I am today,” said Walsh.
