ADK Wellness Connections Update

AHI: Adirondack Health Institute

Dear Colleague:

Adirondack Health Institute (AHI) wishes you a Happy New Year! As you know, AHI sponsors ADK Wellness Connections, a free referral network powered by Unite Us, the platform that connects individuals to a wide range of health and social resources in their communities. AHI would like to share some exciting news regarding recent accomplishments within the ADK Wellness Connections program.

AHI has been awarded funding through the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation to continue ADK Wellness Connections’ programmatic work through the Connected Health grant in 2022. This grant supports the partnership between AHI and the Alliance for Better Health who oversee the Healthy Together referral network, and with ADK Wellness Connections, are part of the larger Unite NY Network.

AHI is pleased to share that Victoria Knierim has been promoted to Program Manager of the ADK Wellness Connections program. We are also pleased to announce that Rebecca Bigelow will assume the position of Program Specialist for ADK Wellness Connections. Victoria and Rebecca have been part of the AHI team since January of 2016 and March of 2018 respectively, in various roles, and most recently, supporting the work and growth of the ADK Wellness Connections program. Please join us in wishing Victoria and Rebecca continued success.

Lastly, as the ADK Wellness Connections network continues to grow, AHI is actively recruiting a Program Navigator to join the team to support program operations and network expansion.

With these changes, we thank our partners for continued support within the network and your ongoing efforts connecting individuals to vital resources to create healthier communities. We encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or would like to discuss your network use in greater detail.

Warm Regards,

The ADKWC Team
