Our patient visits are up by 13 percent over 2008, and we must make every effort to expand Clinic space in the upcoming year. Supporting the Clinic also shows support for the needs of our neighbors and friends, who have lost their jobs, hours at their jobs, and sometimes their health insurance benefits, too."

It is the mission of the Ithaca Health Alliance to facilitate access to health care for all, with a focus on the needs of the un- and underinsured.
