(Mineola, NY) - New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (NYCTCM), a higher education institution with a fully accredited three-year Masters Program in Acupuncture and a four-year Masters Program in Oriental Medicine, celebrated its relocation with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Sunday at 200 Old Country Road. NYCTCM was excited to welcome everyone to the new facility, which is housed in three floors of the building and contains classrooms, study room, library, clinic, administrative offices and student and faculty lounges.
Over 100 guests celebrated the occasion. Attending the ribbon cutting ceremony were 7th District State Senator Jack M. Martins, Mineola Mayor Scott Strauss, Office of Nassau County Executive, Edward Mangano representative Anne DeMichael, Mineola Chamber of Commerce President Tony Lubrano, Tronex International President Donald Chu, American Academy of Medical Acupuncture President Dr. Thomas Burgoon, Traditional Chinese Medicine Alumni Association of America General Secretary Dr. Decheng Chen, and members of the NYCTCM Board of Trustees (Lois Beckerman, Sun Pei, Tammy Tsao, Libang Zhang and Lawrence Jones).
Ms. Lois Beckerman, Chair of the NYCTCM Board of Trustees, began the ceremony with, “Dr. Chen, Dr. Bare, all of these professors, teachers, and educators put their heart and soul into this environment…and this is a wonderful day for all of us.”
After reminiscing about his previous visit to the old facility, Senator Jack M. Martins expressed, “This is another step in the right direction…The larger community has the opportunity to learn and have access to alternative healthcare benefits and ways of treating people…We are training not only people who need it but we are also training future practitioners and future doctors right here in our community…On behalf of the State Senate it is my privilege to be here to join with you and to present you with a citation in recognizing the move, congratulating you and wishing you nothing but the best.”
NYCTCM received congratulations from other key figures in the local community. Mayor Scott Strauss stated that, “New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine is growing…we certainly appreciate your desire to stay in the village that we call home and that you call home.” County Representative Anne DeMichaels wished, “Best of luck to everybody here.” President Tony Lubrano congratulated NYCTCM, “on your new location and thank you for continuing to invest in Mineola.”
Dr. Yemeng Chen, president of NYCTCM, concluded, “It’s the 20th Anniversary of our college, we still keep our core values compassion, tradition, integration, innovation. So I hope…tomorrow, it will be a bright future of our college and our goal, I think, will be to be one of the best acupuncture schools in the United States.”
New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine will also celebrate its 20th Anniversary this year and is proud to continue to serve the Mineola community.
