NYU Winthrop Partners With Local Boy Scout to Provide Vital Resource to the Mineola Community

Fifteen-year-old Mineola resident Cameron Duic wanted to find a way to help his fellow neighbors. The Boy Scout, who is working towards his Eagle Scout badge, had the idea to provide a quick and easy way for first responders to access medical information of patients in emergency situations. So he reached out to NYU Winthrop, his medical neighbor, to see how it might be possible.

Upon meeting with Village of Mineola Trustee Paul Cusato and NYU Winthrop’s Director of External Affairs, Justin Burke, Mr. Duic received the Hospital’s support to make this vital resource, called “File of Life,” available to Mineola residents. Mr. Duic spent several weeks joining with his fellow Boy Scouts to deliver thousands of File of Life folders to the mailboxes of Mineola residents. Once completed by the recipient, the magnetic File of Life packet can easily hang on the refrigerator door.

“Medical emergencies can happen any- time and now, residents will have a tool to keep all of their vital medical and emergency contact information in one place and save emergency workers precious seconds when they’re needed most,” said John F. Collins, NYU Winthrop’s President and CEO.
