Sister Joan Cassidy and Michael Cuseo Fundraiser**NEW DATE**

June 8, 2021 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM (EDT)


Each year the ACHCA NY Chapter celebrates the lives of Sister Joan Cassidy and Michel Cuseo. We commemorate Chapter Member Sister Joan Cassidy who passed away on October 15, 1998 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was a member of the Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Halifax. Loved by all who knew her, she was well respected in the long-term care field. She embodied the highest moral qualities and brought a level of professionalism and ethics to ACHCA on both a state and national level.

Michael Cuseo was instrumental in establishing Chem Rx as the premiere Long-Term Care pharmacy in New York. He generously devoted his time, talents and professional efforts as Chem Rx’s Supervising Pharmacist for over thirty years. Michael took a deep interest in the pharmaceutical aspects of the nursing home industry, but more importantly, will be remembered for his warm personality and infectious sense of humor. All who were fortunate enough to make his acquaintance, will fondly remember Michael.

ACHCA NY Chapter celebrates diversity and seeks to help those entering the field of nursing home management and administration through its Sister Joan Cassidy/Michael Cuseo Fund.  The funds raised as proceeds from this event help to replenish that Fund.  In their memory, the Chapter will host the annual fundraiser for the purpose of funding diversity and inclusion efforts within the Chapter and within the industry.

The presentation of the Sister Joan Cassidy Award for Diversity and Inclusion (for ACHCA members) and the Michael Cuseo Award for Diversity and Inclusion (for Chapter Business Affiliates) will be celebrated at the annual Convention at Resorts World Monticello on Tuesday evening, June 8, 2021.
