Nassau County Executive was honored as “Man of the Year” by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Long Island Chapter, at their 24th Anniversary Gala on Saturday October 8th. The selection committee sought an individual who has excelled in their commitment to public service.

“I thank the Long Island Chapter of St. Jude’s for this honor,” said County Executive Mangano. “While I may be your Man of the Year, the real people of the year are the hardworking men and women of the St. Jude’s family, and the committee members and supporters who keep fighting for a cure. I am truly thankful for their years of dedication and commitment towards research, care and hope to one-day defeating childhood cancer.”

Since being sworn in to office, County Executive Mangano has made the health, safety and welfare of our children a priority. In 2016, his administration received a prestigious National Model Practice Award for its “A Safe Place to Sleep” program which addresses infant fatalities resulting from unsafe sleep practices. Mangano also contracted with Memorial Sloan Kettering to construct a $140 million world-class Cancer Center in Nassau County.

While County Executive Mangano is proud of his many healthy initiatives, he is especially proud of the administrations success with:

• Healthy Women have Healthy Babies—a program that works to keep women healthy before, during and after pregnancy by encouraging early prenatal care and offering motherhood preparation and nutrition information.
• Women’s, Infants and Children’s (WIC) Services and Education—provides nutritious foods as well as nutrition counseling and education.
• Cribs for Kids—a safe-sleep education program for parents and caregivers which includes the intervention of a safety-approved crib if the family cannot otherwise afford one.
• Early Intervention—a voluntary developmental evaluation and services program for children with special needs.
• Child Fatality Review—helping to identify risk and preventable causes of illness or injury, prioritize prevention and promote recommendations and actions to prevent future child deaths.
• Disease Control Bureau and Immunization Bureau—protects children who may have been exposed to a communicable disease.
