To solve the problems identified by each of the eight counties in Central New York in our report, the New York Statewide Senior Action Council, in partnership with the Health Foundation for Western & Central New York, has established a Central New York Health Task Force. Learn more.
Participants from ten focus groups held in eight Central NY counties were shared their own health care stories and valuable insight into the problems and issues confronting people using, or attempting to use, health care services in Central New York. View the full report and key findings.
