On Saturday, November 23rd 2019, Nationalities Service Center (NSC) will host its 15th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration. The Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) and the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) are the presenting sponsor of this the 2019 celebration! Staff, volunteers, and Board members are expected to host and serve dinner to over 200 guests, including current and former NSC clients. Our new arrivals during the past year have included refugees from Ukraine, Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Pakistan. For these clients, many of whom have fled extreme violence and oppression in their home countries, this event will be their first Thanksgiving since resettling in the United States. In addition to sharing a meal together, the day will also feature a program of diverse music, dancing, and a special guest performance. Families will also able to get their family portraits taken through a photo booth sponosred by ECFMG/FAIMER.
