Rural communities are enmeshed in a vicious cycle of resource scarcity, poor health outcomes, lost productivity and lack of economic growth. Through collaboration with community organizations, county health departments, and healthcare systems, and with funding from NYS DOH, the Rural Health Education Network of Schoharie, Otsego and Montgomery Counties (RHENSOM) is dedicated to serving the health needs of our communities through innovative, evidence-based programming and initiatives. RHENSOM was successful in securing a new five year contract from NYS DOH, which began in January 2019. Key areas of work in 2019 focused on two overarching objectives. The first was to address health disparities associated with chronic disease, and the second was to empower both seasoned healthcare professionals and youth to become more engaged in creating a healthy environment.

Highlights from 2019:
