A virtuoso performance by staff and students
Many high level representatives of the area’s leading medical facilities including Beth Israel Hospital, St. Luke’s Hospital, Roosevelt Hospital, Long Island College Hospital and NY Eye & Ear Infirmary were there for the “serenade of graduation” on June 15, 2007. The Deans of Philips Beth Israel School of Nursing, Long Island College Hospital School of Nursing and the Helene Fuld College of Nursing were honored guests, as well. Physicians also attended who are in private practices that regularly hire Allen School graduates and/or provide internships for them. Opening remarks, a work of thoughtful composition, by Jill Luke, Director of Queens, were followed by a duet of fond affection and respect, with Lillian Mitchell, Director of Brooklyn, to honor the original CEO, President and visionary of the Allen School, Loretta Teich. Following the interlude of honor and reverence for Mrs. Teich, was the keynote address, presented by Travis Williams, Senior Manager of Corporate Human Resources for HLTH Corporation (formerly Emdeon Corporation and WebMD).
