Students at LaGuardia believe in the transformative power of education – not just for themselves and their families but for our community and our society as well.
Our students are bold. They venture outside their comfort zone. They’re driven to experiment because taking risks is how we learn. And they never settle.
With this unmatched independence, curiosity and ambition, LaGuardia students are shattering misperceptions about what it means to study at a community college and what public education can do for the future of our nation.
Among several academic awards, Omid won first place at the 2011 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students for his research and poster presentation on the effects of female sex hormones on the response of macrophages.
He has participated in the New York Physical Therapist Assistant Board of Directors meeting where they decided on by-laws and policies for the profession and has served as the vice president of LaGuardia’s Physical Therapist Assistant Club.
He also volunteers at the Hospital for Special Surgery and is a first-degree black belt and instructor of Kajukenbo.
After LaGuardia, Omid looks forward to enrolling into the Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) program at City College, a training program in academic research; and later opening a medical office with his family.
