Welcome to the board

Standing O is putting out the welcome mat for Dr. Alka Nischal. The geriatric medicine specialist at Winthrop University Hospital of Medicine has been named as a board member to the Board of Trustees at Helen Keller Services.

Helen Keller Services is the largest and oldest human service organizations serving individuals who are blind, visually impaired, deaf-blind, or have combined hearing and vision loss.

Joseph Bruno, president and chief executive officer at the center, made the announcement and said: “Dr. Nischal is a compassionate, highly-skilled physician with board certifications in Internal Medicine and Geriatrics. I am confident she will make an excellent trustee given her strong background in serving diverse populations and her keen belief in our mission.”

Dr. Nischal has practiced medicine at Winthrop in Mineola since 2015, and has been a physician for the past 15 years. Prior to that she treated patients at Harlem Hospital Health Center for four years. Professional memberships include Society of Hospital Medicine, American Geriatric Society, and American College of Physicians, among others.
