Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and its CFO & CBO Jaime Bartushak Honored by Somerset Hills Learning Institute


Leading Center for Autism Education and Research has named Citius and Bartushak the 2022 Honorees for their annual Halloween Gala

CRANFORD, N.J. , Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Citius Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ("Citius" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: CTXR), a late-stage biopharmaceutical company developing and commercializing first-in-class critical care products, today announced that Citius, along with the Company's Chief Financial Officer and Chief Business Officer, Jaime Bartushak, were named as 2022 Honorees by the Somerset Hills Learning Institute ("The Institute").  

The Institute is among the leading centers for autism education and research in the United States, forever changing the lives of people with autism with their unique blend of compassion and science. By integrating the compassion of its dedicated staff with cutting edge interventions, The Institute has provided its students with multiple opportunities to learn, play, and participate meaningfully with their families and in their communities.

"The Institute is a very special place that has benefited my entire family immeasurably. I am deeply honored to be recognized along with Citius as the 2022 Honorees," stated Bartushak.

"Consistent with the literature, we have returned nearly half of the children who we've served before age five to their neighborhood schools to continue their education, needing no special support. These graduations produce significant savings to taxpayers. By returning students to their schools, we have saved NJ taxpayers more than $60 million," said Dr. Kevin Brothers, The Institute's Founding Executive Director. 

As school district tuition covers only a portion of what is costs to serve children with autism, The Institute must rely on fundraising to bridge their deficit each year. "The Halloween Ball is our largest event and as support for the Institute continues to grow, we have been fortunate to develop strong relationships with multiple generous individuals, businesses, and corporations. Citius has been among our army of very loyal supporters and Jaime Bartushak, in particular, also gives of his time and talent year after year planning and organizing our annual Golf Outing and Halloween Ball," Brothers explained. "We are so grateful for these amazing partnerships."

The 23rd Annual Halloween Ball will be held at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ on Friday, October 28th.
