Black and Puerto Rican Legislative Caucus

Several Allied Health students were interviewed and selected to represent the BEOC during its 46th anniversary of the Legislative Caucus which was held on February 17 - 18th, 2017 in Albany New York.

The overnight event was sponsored by UCAWD and the venue provided an excellent atmosphere for the students to share their academic success stories, meet with other EOC’s throughout the State of New York,  demonstrate learned skills such as blood pressure screening and laboratory procedures as well as discussing their academic achievements with legislative representatives.

Assemblywomen Crystal Peoples and other key sponsors meet with the students and listened to why BEOC was instrumental in assisting them in meeting their academic goals. And the day ended with a personal tour of the Senator Chambers by Timothy M. Kennedy NY State Senator.
