Achieving Health Equity and Disparity Reduction: A Conversation with Local Leaders and Community

The Suffolk County Human Rights Commission is hosting a forum on health care, “Achieving Health Equity and Disparity Reduction: A Conversation with Local Leaders and Community” on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Touro Law School, 222 Eastview Drive, Central Islip, NY from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.

This forum will consist of an exceptional panel of providers, regulators, and administrators of our health care system who will discuss both the access and delivery of health care to the underserved populations in our county. Following the forum there will be an open session to allow questions and answers with the audience which will consist of community advocates, agency leaders, community organizations, and members of the public interested in health care and equity. We hope that your organization will be one of those in attendance to provide your valued perspective on this important topic.

RSVP by telephone at (631) 853-5480 or by email to humanrights@suffolkcountyny.gov, on or before April 04, 2019, or by visiting our registration page at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-schrc-health-symposium-tickets-58807857886.

We look forward to your presence at our health care forum.

If you have been the victim of DISCRIMINATION in EMPLOYMENT, HOUSING, CREDIT, PLACES OF PUBLIC ACCOMMODATIONS OR VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTING call the Commission at 631-853-5480

Please make an appointment to speak with an Investigator if you believe that  you have been treated unfairly because of your  RACE, COLOR, CREED, AGE, DISABILITY, NATIONAL ORIGIN, GENDER, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, MARITAL STATUS, PREGNANCY, FAMILIAL STATUS, MILITARY STATUS, VETERAN STATUS, ARREST/CONVICTION RECORD, ALIENAGE OR CITIZENSHIP STATUS, LAWFUL SOURCE OF INCOME  OR STATUS AS A VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. The Suffolk County Human Rights Law was expanded (effective January 21, 2015) to include Domestic Violence Victims, Veteran Status, Military Status and Lawful Source of Income as protected categories under the law.

You can now make an appointment at either our Hauppauge or Riverhead office. Our professional staff will assess your allegations and your legal options will be clearly explained. Of course, as a county agency, there is no charge for our services! In addition to investigating violations of the Human Rights laws, the Commission also accepts complaints of undue force or discriminatory treatment against the Suffolk County Police Department.

The Suffolk County Human Rights Commission's mission is to work toward the elimination of bias and discrimination. Our services also include providing speakers to community groups and businesses to explain the law and assist in the prevention of complaints.

Feel free to call for confidential advice and assistance.
