Medical Centers Meeting the Community Health Needs

CHI LogoSuburbia is often depicted as picturesque, wholesome and orderly, a place of green lawns and healthy people.  But the stereotypical view hides grave disparities in health and great differences in social welfare. Medical Centers Meeting Community Health Needs is the second in a lecture series on Public Health in the Suburbs presented by the Adelphi University Center for Health Innovation. This session is aimed at understanding the many pathways by which healthcare providers on Long Island monitor and seek to improve community health outside the clinical setting. 

The program is planned for Friday, November 8, 2013, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. in the Ruth S. Harley University Center, Room 313, located at 1 South Avenue in Garden City, NY.
