Geneseo Parish Outreach Center – SUNY Geneseo 2019 Connection
September has been a busy month for the Center connecting with opportunities at SUNY Geneseo.

On September 3rd
Diana Harke, Volunteer and current President of the Board of Directors, met with Norm Karsten at SUNY’s Small Business Development Center where she got several great ideas on how to improve the Center’s community presence – that is making its function of providing free and minimal cost health services known to the population who might need these services. These ideas can be implemented without taking funds from patient care. Word of mouth and doctor referrals have been the main avenues of alerting potential patients of the Center’s services to date.

September 4th
Linda Weaver, Founder and Former Executive Director and Diana Harke participated in the Volunteer Fair at SUNY Geneseo. Fourteen students expressed an interest in helping the Outreach Center further its mission of Providing Access to Health Care for the uninsured and undeserved population. Several signed up to help at the upcoming Diabetic clinic.

On September 11th
Donna Flaherty, the Center’s Executive Director, Linda Weaver, and Diana Harke met with Wendy Pogozelski, Distinguished Teaching Professor of Chemistry and Pre-med Student Coordinator, and 8 pre-med students to introduce them to the Center and its operation. This partnership will benefit the Center with volunteer help and the students in experience in a rural, free and charitable health clinic.

On September 27th
Linda and Diana met with Nicole Manapol, Field Coordinator of SUNY’s Adopt-a-Business student intern program, and five college students who are becoming interns. Two of these students will be working with us. The students learned about the Geneseo Parish Outreach Center including its functions and operations. Having already looked at us on line, they were able to give us technology advice immediately. The two students who will be working with us will come up with a plan to help us with more technical advice that is aimed at furthering our mission and program.
