This past Tuesday, I was able to attend the New York State Association of Rural Health
(NYSARH)’s Albany Advocacy Briefing. There were several great presentations. I was impressed with NYS Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, who is the Chair of the Rural Resources commissions and is a strong supporter of Rural EMS. We also heard from Jack Marzulli, who is part of the Reimagine NY Commission. He shared the importance of telecommunications to rural communities moving into the future.
This briefing served as a great update to NYSARH members from across the state to ensure we are all on the same page moving forward on how we best can serve our rural communities.
Thank you to NYSARH, Sara Wall Bollinger, Director for Strategic Development and Barry Brogan, Chair, Policy Committee for coordinating the briefing and bringing this valuable information to the Rural Health Networks across NYS.
