- National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation Ambassador, Irwin L. Garsten, presented Peconic Bay Medical Center
(PBMC)with a check to benefit the School of Radiology.

"Peconic Bay Medical Center is honored to be the recipient of such a generous gift and we thank Irwin Garsten and the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation for supporting PBMC's goal to provide quality, comprehensive healthcare to the communities we serve", said Andrew Mitchell
, President & CEO of Peconic Bay Medical Center.
The field of Radiologic Technology is rapidly expanding and with changes in advanced treatment and patient care come new opportunities for students to enter this professionally diverse field of practice. There is a shortage of trained radiologic technologists nationally, and the Peconic Bay program is one of the last hospital-based programs in Suffolk County that provides this specialized training. "I want the community to be aware that this program exists and as an academic institution, PBMC offers students a high standard of medical education to meet the challenges of this rewarding career", said Irwin Garsten.
This generous donation will help the school to continue to offer students an opportunity to train in a state-of-the-art facility in a field that is in demand. The school is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education Radiologic Technology and recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
