Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council

2017 Ann Marie Brown Memorial Scholarship Recipient James Bie with Janine Logan, Senior Director Communications and Population Health for NSHC.
James Bie, a resident of Hauppauge, New York and student at Boston University, was selected as the 2017 Ann Marie Brown Memorial Scholarship recipient. Awarded annually by the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council (NSHC) and its Communications Committee, the $2,000 scholarship was presented to Bie at the group’s annual luncheon on June 8.

Bie, is pursuing a dual major in the fields of communication studies and film and TV as well as a minor in political science. He was chosen based on his outstanding academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and commitment to community service. In his studies, Bie uses visual, verbal, and comedic outlets to tell stories about issues, events, or people. He is a self-proclaimed storyteller, using varied media to spark conversations. He has served as a producer for Stage the Change, a theatre non-profit dedicated to teaching students how to be “socially mindful theatre artists.” Bie maintains an impressive 3.93 grade point average, while finding time to devote to such activities as an undergraduate teaching assistant, director/writer/producer of “Spent” – an original 30-minute comedy pilot, production intern for WTBU Radio and acting for Boston University on Broadway.

The Ann Marie Brown Memorial Scholarship has been awarded since 1994 and commemorates the late vice president for government and public affairs at the Hospital Council. Brown served in this role from 1983 – 1993. The scholarship is offered to a college junior, senior, or post-graduate student who is both a resident of Long Island and studies communication arts, journalism, or health care administration.

The Hospital Council’s Communications Committee is comprised of the senior public relations directors from Long Island’s not-for-profit and public hospitals. In addition to administering this yearly scholarship, this committee oversees the Hospital Council’s communication initiatives. It works to affect rational health policy and legislation, promote the programs and services offered by hospitals, and advocate for the health care needs of all Long Islanders.
