Syosset, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2008
New York College of Health Professions is proud to announce the appointment of Jitsuro Terashima, Executive Managing Officer; President, Global Strategic Studies Institute of Mitsui & Company, one of the largest companies in the world, as a member of the Board of Trustees.
"Dr. Terashima is one of the most brilliant men of our time, and his insights into education, politics and current geopolitical events honors the College with his acceptance," says Lisa Pamintuan, President of the College. "While New York College was an early leader in Holistic Health, our College has grown tremendously in the past five years attaining Institutional Accreditation, in addition to programmatic accreditation, and creating strong relationships between Eastern and Western medicine. A Health Workforce Retraining Grant from New York State allowed us to train nurses in Holistic Medicine at the Bellevue Hospital Center, the oldest hospital in the Western Hemisphere, in techniques that have been used for thousands of years in Asia, but are only recently gaining acceptance in the United States."
"Mitsui & Co., one of the largest holding and trading companies in the world, has a particular interest in going into Wellness. We hope to coordinate programs with Colleges in Japan in the next couple of years."
"Dr. Terashima, a well known author, correspondent, advisor to countries and one of the strongest business leaders in the world, brings tremendous value to our College as we continue to expand," continues Ms. Pamintuan. "As plans materialize, more specifics will be released about this highly valued addition to our Board."
With a 70,000 sq. foot campus in New York and a several hundred thousand square foot facility in China, the College intends to extend into sites in Manhattan and nationally over the next few years. The College is also considering expanding into several overseas countries.
