Danielle works with a consortium of more than 30 health and human service organizations, assisting them to improve the quality, affordability and availability of health care services in Oswego County.

The analogy is that each of these groups tend to work in silo fashion duplicating services of not effectively placing their services where needed.

Danielle brings them together for planning, streamlining application, awareness of others services for starters.

Additionally she aids the groups in practices like finding health care professionals and attracting them to Oswego County.

The committees under Rural Health Care cover health care issues, Co-Morbid Conditions, Funding and Public Policy, health workforce, Technology and compliance with Health Care laws in state and federal.

Danielle was introduced by Rotarian Nancy Kush Ellis, program chairperson.

The Rural Health Network is one of the numerous programs conducted by Oswego County Opportunities.
