Our first SCASN-Zone 2 meeting of 2017 will take place Tuesday, January 17, 4:30 p.m., at E. Suffolk BOCES Center, 15 Andrea Drive, Holbrook, NY 11741. All are welcome. The evening will begin with a light meal followed by our membership meeting. The evening’s presentation will feature Andrew Tucci, project manager with Northwell Health, formally known as NS/LIJ.

Mr. Tucci will address Northwell Health’s partnership with organizations in Suffolk County whose goal is to improve population health. Specifically, he will discuss a current project involving home visits for children with asthma to provide education to the family and identify environmental triggers. This proactive, preventive program is staffed by RNs, and provided at no-cost to the family.

We look forward to welcoming Mr. Tucci and both current and new members to our casual but educational meeting.
