News from Finger Lakes Public Radio
The link between poor health and poverty is stronger than ever in the Finger Lakes, according to a new report from Rochester non-profit Common Ground Health. As WXXI’s Brett Dahlberg reports, the organization says it has data that’s never been collected before. “We asked questions that no one else was asking,” Common Ground Health CEO Wade Norwood said of a report his organization released Monday. “Folks were honest with us in a way we did not expect,” he said. The results of the survey provide the strongest evidence yet of a link between poverty and poor health outcomes in the Finger Lakes, Norwood said.
