Former Melrose Person of The Year In This Week's Crain's!

Dr. Richard Izquierdo (not to be confused by the embattled Richard Izquierdo Arroyo – grand son of New York State Assemblywoman Carmen E. Arroyo and nephew of City Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo) was the feature of a Crain’s New York article today on the realization of his dream to create a charter school to train the future health care practitioners of the future – right here in our borough.  The Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School will be opening its doors this September 2010 school year with its first class of 6 graders.

Doc, as Dr. Richard Izquierdo is known by the community, was the 2009 Welcome2Melrose Person Of The Year and through his hard work over the last 50+ years has transformed the landscape of health care in the South Bronx.

A big Melrose THANK YOU to Dr. Izquierdo for his continuous hard work to bring quality health care to our people as well as helping empower our youth through education.
