Red Moon Fest Honorary Chair

"It is wonderful that the Middlesex Community College Foundation has chosen to highlight the radiologic technology program at this year's Red Moon Fest, and it is my honor to serve as honorary chair of this annual event. Middlesex Community College is an institution that is so important to both Middlesex Health and the growth and development of our community at large, and Middlesex Health is proud to have a long-standing, positive and productive relationship with the college, specifically through the innovative radiologic technology program. The radiologic technology program has been offered on the Middlesex Hospital campus in Middletown for at least 50 years. Students get to learn from Middlesex Health employees; the health system ultimately has a chance to help and shape potential employees. And we continue to strengthen this symbiotic relationship, helping to make our community a better, healthier place in the process. Supporting the Middlesex Community College Foundation means investing in our future, and I hope you will join me in supporting all students, including our future radiologic technologists, as they work to achieve their goals and reach their greatest potential."—Vincent G.
