Empowering Health Care Consumers: Conference Participation Scholarships

A key goal of NYSHealth’s priority area to empower health care consumers is to ensure people have the tools, resources, and support they need to make informed decisions about their health care. The Foundation is committed to increasing New Yorkers’ choice and control.

Through this Request for Proposals (RFP), NYSHealth will sponsor nonprofit and other low-resource organizations to attend or present at local, State, or national conferences related to empowering health care consumers. NYSHealth will support both organizations already engaged in this work and those new to this field but that want to incorporate consumer empowerment into their work.
