Sports Medicine Program Gives Back to the Community with Student Athlete Scholarships

Congratulations to NYU Winthrop's Sports Medicine Student Athlete Scholarship Recipients! Missing from photos Binita Shah.

For the past three years, NYU Winthrop Hospital ’s Sports Medicine Program has provided athletic trainers for local high school teams, building relationships and helping to prevent and heal injury among students in the process. Recently, adminis- trators of the program found a new way to give back by creating a scholar-athlete scholarship for exceptional students with an interest in the field of healthcare.

“Throughout the partnership, we have met many of the hard working, dedicated athletes and wanted to honor their achieve- ments with a scholarship opportunity,” said Stephen Wirth, PT, Administrative Director of Sports Medicine at NYU Winthrop.

Senior students from the partnering high schools who were applying to a college program in healthcare or a related field and had a GPA of 3.0 or higher were eligible. As part of the application process, students were asked to submit an essay supporting why they should be selected and explaining how athletics has been a part of their goals for future contributions in healthcare. All applications were reviewed by the NYU Winthrop Sports Medicine Committee. One student from each of the partnering high schools was then selected to receive a $500 scholarship.

The winners are as follows: Binita Shah, a Tennis, Bowling and Badminton athlete from WT Clarke High School who will be attending Barnard College this fall majoring in Oncology; Paul Chavez, a Football, Track and Field, and Wrestling athlete from East Meadow High School who plans to major in Physical Therapy; Bridget Bingham, a Field Hockey and Lacrosse athlete from Garden City High School who plans to attend Georgetown University this fall majoring in Biology; Jacquelyn McCreory, a Soccer and Lacrosse athlete from Division Avenue High School in Levittown who will be attending Adelphi University majoring in Nursing; Greg Baumstein, a Soccer and Basketball athlete from MacArthur High School in Levittown attending the University of Rhode Island this fall majoring in Physical Therapy; Madalyn Fernbach, a Soccer athlete from Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School attending Stonehill College this fall majoring in Neuroscience and Biology Pre-Med; and Sarah Buckley, a Softball athlete from South Side High School in Rockville Centre attending Simmons College this fall majoring in Physical Therapy.

“We congratulate all the scholarship recipients and are looking forward to next year’s applications,” said Mr. Wirth.

In addition to the scholarship, NYU Winthrop’s Sports Medicine Program also provides seminars and other educational opportunities to the communities for students, parents and coaches, such as how to prevent injury and how to protect children from long-term disability.

“We’re excited to be involved in these schools and giving back,” said Mr. Wirth.
