Next FOCUS Forum, Friday, July 20, on Community Engagement
Join us in the atrium of City Hall Commons
Onondaga Citizens League study co-chairs, Tom Carlin and Patti Giancola Knutsen, will present the league’s 37th study. The topic this year is Community Engagement. You can read the study in advance at the Onondaga Citizens League web site.
The June 15 Forum brought a national speaker to Syracuse.
The June 15, 2018, FOCUS Forum featured Dr. Joe Selby, Executive Director of the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute in Washington, D.C., with Dr. Sharon Brangman of SUNY Upstate Medical University.
Dr. Selby’s visit is the result of years of work by the CNY-CAN collaboration of FOCUS Greater Syracuse, SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Division of Geriatrics – now Department of Geriatrics, Southwest Community Center, and HealtheConnections. CNY-CAN has been bringing together patients and caregivers with health professionals to share their experiences and identify the kinds of research needed to meet patient needs.

We thank PCORI, Loretto and the Health Foundation of Western & Central New York and SUNY Upstate Medical University for helping to make this visit possible.
