Oyster Bay, NY: Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and the Town Board held a special ‘Women of Distinction’ ceremony to recognize exceptional women who have significantly contributed to community. This year’s ‘Women of Distinction’ honorees included Dr. Gina Bajaj of Hicksville
Supervisor Saladino stated, “These extraordinary individuals all have something special about them that deserves recognition. While they all have different outstanding qualities that make our Women of Distinction Committee members select them as honorees, they all have one thing in common – these women all do what they do without the expectation of any recognition.”
Councilwoman Laura Maier added, “Our committee had a particularly difficult task of narrowing down the nominees this year. Gina should take pride in her great achievements as she is a true role model in our community.”
Dr. Bajaj is a practicing optometrist, who goes out of her way to assist and guide patients dealing with vision loss or vision issues from screening patients in shelters, fundraising and charity walks and spending time with elderly patients at nursing homes.
