2019 Health Care Labor Seminar

In May 2019, our leadership team met with various union representatives to discuss topics focused on NYS and federal legislative updates, as well as strategies around increasing member engagement in their health. Those in attendance had the opportunity to hear about the most current state and federal legislative proposals directly from our Vice President of Government Affairs, Don Ingalls, and about the current variety of health care resources and strategies available to members from Jennifer Johengen-Vogel, Vice President of Health Management.
