Newburgh Mount Saint Mary College is proud to announce the appointment of lifelong Newburgh resident Genesis Ramos as Executive Director of the Desmond Center for Community Engagement and Wellness.“It’s an amazing opportunity that the college is embarking on and it’s truly and honor to be at the helm of it,” said Ramos. “There is a critical need for this in our community.” The Desmond Center will be located on the college’s campus in what is currently Guzman Hall and will provide medical and educational services for low income individuals and families, including the uninsured.  “When it comes to healthcare, community engagement and outreach are critical,” Ramos said. “We need to involve our community in the process so that they can become empowered with their healthcare.” To that end, the center will offer educational workshops, family counseling services, fitness checks, immunizations, professional development events, and more for local residents. Once completed, the college expects the center to serve more than 4,000 residents per year. In addition to providing opportunities for area educators and professionals to volunteer their services, the center will also house the college’s Desmond programing for adult enrichment.
