Expansion of Simulation and Educational Facility

BCW member, the New York Medical College (NYMC), broke ground Tuesday on an expansion of a Simulation and Educational Facility at its Center for Disaster Medicine.

The expansion will allow the center to strengthen its position as the optimal resource for providing essential disaster medicine training and education statewide. The enlarged facility will also help NYMC address climate change and empower resilient communities.

“The Center of Disaster Medicine is continuing to develop programs so that if unfortunately, some of the predictions about global warming turn out to be true…we are prepared to deal with them,” said Alan Kadish, M.D., president of NYMC and TU.

The expansion was made possible by funding provided by New York State (NYS). The NYS Assembly provided $250,000 through a State and Municipal Program grant and NYS Senator Peter Harckham provided $200,000 in capital funding.

The center combines NYMC’s globally recognized assets, expertise and research findings encompassing natural disasters, terrorism, operational and tactical medicine and public health preparedness, with competence in the unique needs of children, persons with disabilities, climate change, equity in preparedness and response and health care systems preparedness.
