NYSHealth’s 10-Year Anniversary Event

October 20, 2016

2016 marks the 10-year anniversary of the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth), and on October 20, 2016, we commemorated this occasion with our Board, grantees, staff, and other partners at an afternoon event. Since we began operations in 2006, we have awarded more than $117 million to more than 400 grantee organizations in our mission to improve the health of all New Yorkers, especially the most vulnerable.

At the event, we reflected on our past 10 years of grantmaking, as well as a took a look ahead to the future of our two priority areas: building healthy communities and empowering health care consumers. The afternoon's first panel discussed efforts underway to help communities become healthier, more active places. The second panel considered what can be done to empower health care consumers and put them at the center of the health care system.

At the event, we also honored the recipients of our Luminary and Emerging Innovator Awards. The awards recognize influential organizations and leaders working to improve health in New York State.
