In the month of February, NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine held the tenth segment of Through the Lens. This is a wonderful competition that allows students and faculty, and staff members to express their creative skills. These skills also represent NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine’s vision to advance, transform, inspire and illuminate physicians of tomorrow. “Learning through Observing” was the tenth theme of the photography competition, which featured three talented winners including two students, and a faculty member. The winners were announced at a different NYIT event on February 26th.

Monica Mureb, a first- year osteopathic medical student was the first place winner. Her winning image is titled, “La Salinas de Maras” and the beautiful title is just as amazing as the photograph that is currently shown above the article you can find on the NYIT website. Monica says she had spent three weeks in Peru over the summer of 2015 volunteering with International Volunteer HQ in Cusco. “While I was there, I spent most of my time listening and observing the culture … how they live, what they believe in, how they survive.”

The second place winner is Victoria Deering for “The Watering Hole” who happens to also be a second- year osteopathic medical student. Her image portrays four zebras while on a safari in Tanzania, Africa. Deering says, “ We were observing the animals and I caught this wonderful moment on camera… I am constantly observing my surroundings because you never know what you might see and learn.”

Lastly, the “Who Are You?” third place winner is Sandeep Ghandi, M.D. a clinical assistant professor. Ghandi says, “A mockingbird stopped from his food–gathering chore to observe me and learn.”

If want to enter the contest, perhaps you could get some inspiration from our very own NYIT Old Westbury Campus. Whether it is the upcoming of Spring trees blooming, or a snow day, year round our campus looks beautiful.  Grab a camera, and get that inspiration flow going! President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. expressed that this is a great example of how “medical students learn to think creatively and build sensitivity from different perspectives.” Don’t forget to enroll into the competition next time around, and show us what your eye can capture.
