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.”
