On September 27, Nicole Wadsworth, D.O., dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine, was honored with a Long Island Excellence in Healthcare award by Herald Community Newspapers. The event was held at the Heritage Club in Bethpage, N.Y.
The Herald 2023 Excellence in Healthcare Awards recognize and honor deserving individuals, institutions, facilities, and healthcare groups whose dedication and commitment have made a difference in the health and well-being of others.
Wadsworth was recognized in the Education category. NYITCOM alumnus Patrick M. O’Shaughnessy (D.O. ’99), president and chief executive officer of Catholic Health, was also recognized as a distinguished visionary.
“I am honored and delighted to receive this recognition,” said Wadsworth. “NYITCOM is committed to the healthcare needs of the Long Island region, and I am grateful to be a part of this wonderful institution and play a small role in training future physicians.”
