In the Spring of 2009, due to financial cutbacks from the State of New York, biology students at Farmingdale State College were informed that the college could no longer supply them with blank answer forms. These forms, used for tests that are given using the automated grading systems, were now going to have to be supplied by the students, at an added cost.

Westbury Diagnostics, Inc. has had a long relationship with the college, and at that time decided to help. During the past several years, the company’s efforts have allowed over 200 students to attend local prominent scientific meetings. The company is currently making plans to bring some students to the upcoming meeting on Pathogens in the Blood in New York City. The company has also had several Farmingdale Bioscience students as interns, and company personnel have recently become mentors to Farmingdale students trying to enter the healthcare professions.

Upon hearing about the situation in 2009, Westbury donated a supply of the answer sheets for use in the Bioscience curriculum courses. Many of the students enrolled in the Bioscience Program must work to support their education, and as a Long Island bioscience company Westbury Diagnostics, Inc was happy to be able help lower the costs of their education, even if only slightly. The company is happy to announce that it recently made its fourth donation.
