Houghton Alumnus and Wife Receive Highest Civilian Honor

December 8, 2021

Houghton alumnus Dr. Myron Glick ‘88 and his wife Joyce Glick, the founders of the Jericho Road Community Health Center, were recognized for their decades of generous work in the underserved communities in Buffalo with the Liberty Medal, the highest honor given to a civilian by the New York State Senate. Senator Sean M. Ryan hosted the ceremony.

The Glicks founded Jericho Road 24 years ago as a small, family practice. Since that time, they have continued to expand and now care for over 25,000 patients every year in Buffalo, as well as additional locations in Nepal, Sierra Leone, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The center focuses on meeting the needs of Buffalo’s refugee community, including aiding them in their transition through teaching English as a second language, financial literacy education, and temporary housing.
