Dr. Tim Hudson, chancellor at Arkansas State, today issued the following statement in response to the NYIT decision:

“We’re excited that the NYIT board authorized our joint plans for an osteopathic medical school at Arkansas State.  We have enormous respect for Dr. Guiliano, Dr. Ross-Lee and the rest of the NYIT leadership for their success in developing one of the largest and best D.O. schools in the country. We couldn’t ask for a better partner to help us educate physicians and meet the growing primary care needs of northeast Arkansas and the Delta.”
