A Conversation on Rural Health Disparities in NYS

The Health Foundation for Western & Central New York’s 2022 report Community Health Needs and Opportunities in WNY’s Southern Tierhighlighted how the social determinants of health and other over-arching systemic needs have an impact on the well-being of people in this region.

Now, we’re continuing this conversation by hosting a virtual meeting for community organizations, health care providers, funders, and others serving rural New York State.

Join us to hear from a panel of community health leaders from western New York’s Southern Tier on key topics such as trauma-informed care and health equity issues affecting rural New Yorkers across the state.

The event will conclude with information about an upcoming funding opportunity for community-based organizations collaborating to address these issues.
