A Lookback: Digital Communication of COVID-19 Resources in Rural Upstate New York

Please join us on December 6th at 1 p.m. for a virtual presentation by the Rockefeller Institute of Government’s fall 2021 Center for Law & Policy Solutions (CLPS) undergraduate research interns. The cohort of students will share their analysis of the communication of COVID-19 resources to residents in New York’s Schoharie, Warren, St. Lawrence, and Hamilton Counties by public health officials, county administrators, and local hospitals and healthcare providers.

As a reflection on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, their research aims to highlight the process of COVID-19 communication in rural regions and identify best practices for future public health communications in rural areas.

The undergraduate interns from the University at Albany, Empire State College, and Hudson Valley Community College have spent the fall semester studying this issue under the guidance of CLPS Interim Director Laura Decker. The presentation of their findings will be followed by a Q&A session.

Immigration: Key to the Future—Policies and Practices

The federal government, which determines where refugee resettlement occurs, directed that approximately 6 percent of the refugees admitted to the US since 2002 be resettled in New York, and of that number, 90 percent be resettled in upstate New York. Refugees and other immigrants make important contributions to upstate communities as they fill jobs in local businesses, invest in local housing markets, create new businesses, and pay taxes. The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) in partnership with the Government Law Center at Albany Law School and the Rockefeller Institute of Government recently published a new book—“Immigration: Key to the Future – The Benefits of Resettlement to Upstate New York.” The book explores recent trends in immigration in upstate New York, state and local policies that support immigration and resettlement, and the impact new residents have had on their communities. In this webinar, panelists will present key findings from the book and discuss the role and future of immigration in Upstate New York.
