New York Medical College Cares Week encourages camaraderie and outreach
The NYMC chapter of the Gold Humanism Honor Society sponsored the College’s first NYMC Cares Week last fall. Medical students from all four classes joined the effort and took part in seven local outreach events. Events of the week included presenting health information to residents of a local homeless shelter, playing games with the youth at the Woodfield Cottage Juvenile Detention Center, sorting and boxing up donations at the Food Bank of Westchester, touring the Children’s Village of Dobbs Ferry, cooking dinner for guests of the Ronald McDonald House at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at Westchester Medical Center, and baking post-quiz cookies for first- and second-year medical students.
