Advocacy, the Role of Academic Health Science Centers in the Public Policy Arena
Ross A. Frommer, Vice President for Government and Community Affairs (GCA) and Associate Dean Columbia University Irving Medical Center, will discuss the role of advocacy and its importance in our academic healthcare center. He will also provide insights into the critical function of GCA within our medical center and how the CUIMC community can engage with, and benefit from, the services provided.
About the Office of Government and Community Affairs:
“GCA coordinates information on services and programs available at the Medical Center campus. The office responds to and engages community stakeholders, local residents and community based providers as they seek to learn more about the various medical center programs, services, events and activities. We work with various elected officials, medical associations and other organizations to advocate and educate policy makers on areas of interest of our faculty and staff.”
