Newly-elected City and State Legislators Visit Downstate

By Office of The President | Sep 26, 2022

Downstate welcomed visits—coordinated by Alishia Goodridge, Assistant Vice President Government & Community Relations—to the campus from the most recently elected city and state members in the last few months. These visits provide an up-close view into our clinical enterprise at University Hospital at Downstate.  We shared our accomplishments and challenges in delivering the best quality healthcare to our borough’s residents.
