NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine Student Government Association is dedicated to being involved in community outreach programs throughout the year. The SGA plans Community Plunge events with the Glen Cove Boy’s and Girl’s Club, where osteopathic medical students will teach young children about different aspects of basic health and medicine. The SGA also encourages osteopathic medical students to pursue community outreach opportunities outside of the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine community on their own, and grants these students with TOUCH hours that are recognized nationally. The SGA believes that community outreach is an important way for osteopathic medical students to give back to their communities, and hopefully inspire others to pursue a career in health care.
