Government & Community Affairs at NYU Langone Health
At NYU Langone Health, we are on the front lines in creating a healthier New York. Our physicians, researchers, and staff are committed to bringing the highest-quality healthcare and services to communities across the New York metropolitan area. We engage with city, state, and federal officials and community organizations to create partnerships and synergies that enhance the vibrancy of the communities our patients reside in. We collaborate with local organizations through partnerships to provide services, programs, and events to the community at large.
NYU Langone’s Office of Government and Community Affairs serves as a primary liaison between government and elected officials at the city, state, and federal level. The office closely monitors and analyzes important legislation, regulations, and budget proposals and advocates on issues as they affect NYU Langone. We manage relationships with government officials in New York City; Albany, NY; and Washington, DC, and also secure available government funds for various programs and projects.
We coordinate visits to NYU Langone facilities for government officials to meet with our leadership and tour areas of interest, and ensure compliance with lobbying laws at the city, state, and federal level.
We also work with local elected officials and community leaders to address health issues of concern to the community, and maintain working relationships with local community boards.
We focus on community outreach to share information and resources and to increase awareness of NYU Langone in neighborhoods throughout New York City.
NYU Langone sponsors numerous events supporting local nonprofits, community-based organizations, neighborhood associations, and local community groups. Events range from sponsorship and coordination of health fairs to support for annual events and participation in cultural and ethnic celebrations. We are proud to support and partner with these organizations, which are the bedrock of the communities we serve.
Other efforts in the community include coordinating and collaborating with internal departments to participate in community events such as health fairs, seminars and informational workshops lead by health experts, community family days, and more. Through the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone we partner with community-based organizations to provide a range of services to children and families in need.
Our office also works with NYU Langone’s Vaccine Center on community outreach efforts to increase awareness about the safety and effectiveness of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccines.
