NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- On Tuesday, October 18, 2016, the Leadership Summit 2016 was held at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. As the Event Leading Partner, Thompson Education Center (TEC) sponsored and attended the event.
The Leadership Summit's goal is to engage civic, business, and nonprofit leaders in identifying opportunities for improving health and quality of life in our communities.
The event was very well attended. Hundreds of professionals from the local businesses and organizations participated. During the event, decision makers discussed the region's challenges, explored the latest innovations, and collaborated on creating solutions to make a real change and difference in our communities.
Sherry Li, CEO of Thompson Education Center gave a welcome speech to the attendances. "TEC plans to build a Medical Education Center at the campus. After it is built, an influential local medical center is interested in operating it with TEC. TEC is planning to have a nurse training program. The medical center currently has the nursing program and is interested in working with TEC to create their own. Once TEC completes its construction, it will provide many new job opportunities to the community, and the new nursing school will benefit more people not only in the local neighborhood, but surroundings areas."
TEC also has been making monthly fresh vegetable and meat deliveries to Boys & Girls Club/Town of Wallkill, NY since last year. The project delivered hundreds of stuffed panda toys for the holidays last year. The children were so excited and loved the gifts so much.
The Keynote Speakers, Steven Woolf, Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Center of Society and Health, and Sandra Gerry, Founder of Sullivan Renaissance presented statistic analysis, successful models and case studies on community health issues, such as healthy lifestyles, youth education, women and children's health, chronic diseases and drug abuse.
In addition, many specialists from different health care sectors and local school superintendents were also invited to speak briefly on identifying health issues and regional challenges for building healthier communities.
The event was inspiring and surrounded with vibrant leadership and positive energy.
Thompson Education Center is a project that plans to create a high-end education community. It is located in Sullivan County, Upstate New York, covering 575 acres. TEC has been working with several U.S. accredited colleges on Undergraduate Programs and ESL Programs.
TEC will bring economic growth to the local community. Numerous construction professional firms have been retained for the project such as architects, engineers, land-use lawyers and local contractors, to name a few. Many more jobs will be created throughout the entire project, such as real estate agents, professors, instructors, cleaning, and maintenance workers amongst many others.
Thompson Education Center is proud to be a community member of Sullivan County, to support and to help our community and children. Together we can build a better, stronger and healthier community.
