The New York State’s Prevention Agenda 2013-17 is the blueprint for state and local action to improve the health of New Yorkers in five priority areas and to reduce health disparities for racial, ethnic, disability, socioeconomic and other groups who experience them. This dashboard is available publicly and can be searched by county.
The New York State Prevention Agenda Dashboard is an interactive visual presentation of the Prevention Agenda tracking indicator data at state and county levels.
It serves as a key source for monitoring progress that communities around the state have made with regard to meeting the Prevention Agenda 2017 objectives.

You have a choice. Have you considered that home health care may be the answer to your particular needs? The Certified Home Health Agency at Sullivan County Public Health Services is ready to provide you with many of the health services you need, right in your own home.
REFERRALS ARE ACCEPTED FROM: Self/Family, Physicians, Nursing Homes, Hospital Discharge Planning, Rehabilitation Centers and Community Agencies. Be sure to check out the CHAA program's FAQ!
