Welcome to the Community Health VOICE blog. We created this blog to serve as a forum for University of Rochester faculty and staff and our partners in the region who are interesting in expanding access to care and improving understanding of the health problems that we face as a community.

It is our hope that this blog will help inform, build stronger partnerships both inside and outside the Medical Center, and hopefully stimulate conversation around a multitude of health topics.

There is a tremendous amount of collective knowledge and experience at the University of Rochester in this realm. The University’s commitment to community health dates back to George Eastman’s founding gift for the medical school, with which he directed the University to use its talents are resources to “make Rochester one of the healthiest communities in the world.” Today, that commitment is reflected in hundreds of community based research, education and service programs that impact the lives of tens of thousands of individuals in the region.

In case you were wondering, the VOICE stands for volunteer, organize, innovate, collaborate and empower. Our goal is to not only give a “voice” to those who are involved in this important field, but to also give them the tools to build innovative and collaborative solutions to the health problems we face in the community, while at the same time empowering our communities to organize and seek the changes in policy and their environment to improve health.

Please enjoy and we welcome your feedback.
