NYSARH Legislative Day in Albany

We had a great turn out this year with a 19 member delegation on March 3rd, 2017. Our day began with a briefing by five experts who provided NYSARH advocates with up-to-date information on the issues on policy and budget facing rural communities in 2017.

Our expert panel included:

  • Jill Kasow, Legislative Commission on Rural Resources

  • Karen Roach, HANYS

  • Lacy Clarke, CHCANYS

  • Richard Merchant, NYS AHEC

  • John Coppola, NYS Assoc. of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Providers

 

Then we hit the hallways and offices of the Legislative Office Building to Make Our Rural Health Voices Heard. We met with 18 Senators and 16 Assembly members.

See our talking points.
