As part of its ongoing effort to build health capacity, the Health Foundation launched the speaker series, “Speaking of Health in Central New York: Discussion on Topics that Matter,” in 2011.
This speaker series is designed to engage the community in a dialogue on a variety of health care issues that are important to the region.
Topics have included building a sustainable health care system for central New York’s aging population, early childhood trauma, health equity and eliminating health disparities for minorities, the uninsured and underserved and other vulnerable groups.
