Northeast College Receives Community Award from Seneca County Chamber
Northeast College of Health Sciences received the Project/Initiative of the Year Award for its establishment of new undergraduate programs at the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce 2024 Annual Dinner and Community Awards presentation on Jan. 18, 2024.
Since relocating to Seneca Falls in 1991 from its Long Island location, Northeast College has been dedicated to building connections within the community and working together to support and strengthen the area’s history of providing strong leadership and paving the way for progress and opportunity.
Most recently, Northeast College added in-demand academic programs to prepare even more healthcare leaders with its new undergraduate degrees, launching in Fall 2024: an AAS in radiologic technology, an AAS in diagnostic medical Sonography, and a B.S. in health care administration, along with the continued development of our Physician's Assistant program. These new programs are in addition to the College's certificate in Massage Therapy, also beginning Fall 2024, and its existing and well-respected flagship Doctor of Chiropractic program and online master's degree programs in applied clinical nutrition and human anatomy and physiology instruction.
"What an honor it is for our College to receive this award from our fellow community members. We are so thankful to the Seneca County Chamber of Commerce for honoring Northeast College of Health Sciences with the Best Project/Initiative of the Year award and their dedication to our community," said College President Dr. Michael Mestan. "We are proud of the successful rollout of our new programs and the continued development of our Physician's Assistant program. We have a dedicated team of staff and faculty who have worked diligently to make these additions a success and are grateful for their hard work and commitment to the future of our community and healthcare."
The College was among three local businesses/community members recognized for their positive contributions and impact on the community. Lyons National Bank received the Business of the Year Award, and the Humanitarian of the Year Award was posthumously presented to Menzo Case, who served on more than 25 boards for businesses and organizations, including as a longtime member of the College’s Board of Trustees.
