For her years working with children with special needs, the New York City chapter of the Tourette Syndrome Association honored Vice President for Special Education Carmen Alvarez with a plaque and its many thanks. UFT Legislative Representative Michael Davoli, who has Tourette himself and is a board member of the New York City chapter of the association, made the presentation to Alvarez. The event, a fundraiser for the chapter and its work battling the neurological disorder, was held at the Gotham Comedy Club, where members of the club’s troupe performed. The association will begin to collaborate with the UFT on related health projects. To that end, Alvarez announced plans for a program on Tourette Syndrome for special education teachers at UFT headquarters on Oct. 20, and for parents and all educators at the same location on Nov. 7. below: Lil Arbogast, the Tourette Syndrome Association chapter president, joins Davoli (center) in congratulating Alvarez (right).
