SUNY Downstate Town Hall Meeting

We got word of a town hall meeting tomorrow morning to discuss a sustainability plan for SUNY Downstate, the hospital that controls the fate of our local Long Island College Hospital. This is another important opportunity for the community to offer public comment and force those in charge to properly prioritize our health care needs.

Town Hall Meeting
Monday, May 20, 2013
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
SUNY Downstate Medical Center
Alumni Auditorium, 395 Lenox Road, Brooklyn, New York

Persons who wish to make brief comments (no more than three minutes) are requested to file their names with the Registration Officer in advance of the beginning of the Town Hall Meeting. This can be done in person at the Town Hall Meeting prior to the starting time, or by e-mailing hospitalsustainabilityplan@suny.edu with the speaker’s name, e-mail address, and phone number.

The Town Hall Meeting will begin with a brief presentation from SUNY and Downstate officials, followed by comments from interested elected officials. All registered speakers will then be called upon in the order in which they have registered. Extended, written testimony may also be submitted to hospitalsustainabilityplan@suny.edu.
