Assembly Member Dick Gottfried Will Present Grand Rounds on September 14th
New York, NY (September 11, 2014) – Assembly Member Dick Gottfried will present the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health Grand Rounds. His presentation, “Making Health Policy in New York State,” will discuss recent health-related policymaking in the State.
Assembly Member Dick Gottfried represents the 75th Assembly District in Manhattan. He is chair of the Assembly Health Committee since 1987. He is a leading state health policy-maker not only in New York but also nationally. He was a major architect of New York’s landmark managed care reforms, and is continuing to fight for stronger protections for consumers and health care providers, and public support for universal access to quality, affordable health care. Highlights of his legislative work include the passage of: the Prenatal Care Assistance Program for low income women; the Child Health Plus Program, which allows low- and moderate-income parents to get free or low-cost health insurance for their children; and Family Health Plus, which provides free health coverage for low-income adults.
The event will be held from 8-9am on Friday, September 14th in Mount Sinai’s Hatch Auditorium in the Guggenheim Pavilion (1468 Madison Avenue at 100th Street, 2nd Floor). A light breakfast will be served at 7:45am.
