Mark your calendars for the 3rd Thursday from 1pm – 2pm October - November, and January - June.

This webinar series was developed in partnership with the New York State Association for Rural Health with input and feedback on topics from our members. We are pleased to bring you a variety of speakers from across the region over the upcoming year. 

We would like to thank the Foundation for Community Health for sponsoring the webinar series this year.
