    Like their adult counterparts, young people today seem busier than ever. After-school activities including athletics, special interest clubs, and part-time jobs vie for their attention along with an array of recreational activities, not to mention homework. Yet each year, a large group of students finds the time to volunteer through Winthrop's Junior Volunteer Program.

    Winthrop recently honored a group of these special youngsters with a Junior Volunteer Awards Ceremony. Pins and certificates were presented to student volunteers who had completed 50, 100, 200, or 300 hours of volunteer service.

    In addition, the Auxiliary presented $2000 Health Career Scholarships to five deserving graduating high school senior volunteers. Scholarship recipients were Dmitri Coupet, Marissa Ferrazzo, Guerdy Guerrier, Carolyn Miller, and Jennifer Rodman. The Community Club of Garden City and Hempstead also presented its Health Career Scholarship to a deserving Winthrop Junior Volunteer, Allison Wright. The Frances C. Healy Memorial Gold Medal for "Outstanding Service to Winthrop-University Hospital," donated by Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas J. Healy, was presented to Jennifer Rodman.


    Roslyn Savings Foundation recently made a $10,000 grant to Winthrop to help support its "Getting Your Daughter Ready for College" program, coordinated by Women's Health Services in the Institute for Family Care. Sharon G. Grosser (second from right), Executive Director, Roslyn Savings Foundation, presented the check, and was thanked by Winthrop representatives Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman, Department of Pediatrics; Deborah Johnson, RN, Vice President - Administration (left and second from left); and Daniel P. Walsh, President and CEO (right).
    Junior volunteers must be at least 14 years old and may serve in a variety of volunteer positions throughout the Hospital. For additional information on Winthrop's Junior Volunteer Program, please call 516-663-2391.
