Holbrook Resident/Communications Student Wins LI Hospital Association Scholarship
Nicholas Tedesco, a resident of Holbrook, New York and a student at New York Institute of Technology, was selected as the 2018 Ann Marie Brown Memorial Scholarship recipient. Awarded annually by the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council (NSHC) and its Communications Committee, the $2,000 scholarship was presented to Tedesco at the group’s annual luncheon on June 8.
The Ann Marie Brown Memorial Scholarship has been awarded since 1994 and commemorates the late vice president for government and public affairs at the Hospital Council. Brown served in this role from 1983 to 1993. The scholarship is offered to a college junior, senior, or post-graduate student who is both a resident of Long Island and studies communication arts, journalism, or healthcare administration.

The Hospital Council’s Communications Committee is comprised of the senior public relations directors from Long Island’s not-for-profit and public hospitals. In addition to administering this yearly scholarship, this committee oversees the Hospital Council’s communication initiatives. It works to affect rational health policy and legislation, promote the programs and services offered by hospitals, and advocate for the healthcare needs of all Long Islanders. Contact: Janine Logan
