A $10 Million Center for Research in Mental Retardation is Dedicated

A $10 million Rose F. Kennedy Center for Research in Mental Retardation and Human Development was dedicated in ceremonies at Yeshiva University’s Albert Einstein College of Medicine. The 10-story center, which is part of the college, will provide counseling as well as preventive diagnostic and treatment services, and serve as a training ground for teachers and other workers in the retardation field. Yeshiva University’s Belfer Graduate School of Science has received a $166,301 grant from the National Science Foundation to underwrite tuition-free education for more than 400 high school mathematics and science teachers. The one-year grant is part of the foundation’s program of teachers’ courses applicable toward Belfer master of science degrees.
