Current Events

There is growing consensus that in order to achieve quality health care, we must improve functional health literacy. In other words, each of us needs to be educated in order to make informed health care decisions. From a patient perspective, there is a “need to know” information as well as a “need to do” something with information.

This section aims to include current events from across Upstate New York and beyond.  If you wish to post events being held in your area or collaborate to host an all-day MOLST Conference in your region, please contact us.
