In a state as large as New York, a steady stream of smart, innovative work is coming from NYSHealth grantees and non-grantees alike that is relevant to NYSHealth’s priority areas of Building Healthy Communities and Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans’ Health.

These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at regional, statewide, and national conferences, meetings, and other convenings. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so. Abstracts do not get written. Conferences go unattended. As the only statewide health foundation in New York, NYSHealth can play a leadership role in building the field of leaders and changemakers working to build healthy communities, empower health care consumers, and improve veterans’ health in New York State. Through its Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Communities, Consumer Empowerment, and Veterans’ Health Request for Proposals (RFP), NYSHealth is sponsoring low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to these areas.
