Oak Orchard Health will hold a Roots in Our Community: Farm-to-Table Community Health Dinner from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 26 in Cooper Hall at the College at Brockport.
This event will celebrate the health center's community roots with dinner made with meat and produce from area farms.
There will also be tastings of local wines, a community conversation on health care in our community, live music by John Nyerges, and recognition of members of the community who have made a positive influence on health care.
Honorees include: Dr. James Goetz, Karen Watt, Libby Caruso, the Brockport Ecumenical Outreach Committee and myself.
I'm honored and humbled to be recognized for my work positively impacting health care in Brockport through my work as a journalist. One of the first features I ever wrote as a reporter was in 1999 about Oak Orchard and I've always enjoyed highlighting positive news out of this unique and important health center since.
Originally founded by the University of Rochester in 1966, Oak Orchard has grown from a migrant health project into an integrated health center with multiple locations (Albion, Brockport,
Hornell, Lyndonville, Warsaw and a mobile dental unit) providing health care services, including vision, dental, pediatric and primary care, education programs and much more.
