New York, NY- On Friday, October 21, 2016, at the Pierre Hotel, Hellenes gathered to celebrate the Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce’s 68th Anniversary Dinner Dance.  This year, the Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce honored Nitzia Logothetis as Person of the Year.  Nitzia Logothetis is the founder and interim CEO of Seleni Institute, a New York based organization.  The Seleni Institute is a nonprofit organization that was founded by Nitzia and George Logothetis in 2011.  The goal of the institute is to provide clinical services, online information, professional training, and research funding for women’s reproductive and maternal mental health.

Nitzia Logothetis was raised in London.  She performed her undergraduate studies at Brown University and then went on to pursue secondary degrees in psychology from both the University of London and New York University.  She has an extensive background working with disabled children and women.  She understands the daily struggles women face, as a working mother herself, and has dedicated her life’s work to supporting women’s reproductive and maternal mental health.

The Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce has worked tirelessly to unite Greeks abroad and to keep them connected with their heritage.  Each year they honored exceptional individuals who uniquely have contributed to society in America without forgetting their heritage.
