The New York Academy of Medicine released a report this week outlining recommendations on how communities across the city can become better prepared to help senior citizens in the event of an emergency, including weather disasters such as Superstorm Sandy.
The organization, which studies health challenges that communities in urban populations face, said it began researching ways to improve preparedness for seniors immediately following the 2012 storm that left much of New York City crippled after ripping through the East Coast.

Drawing on the lessons of Superstorm Sandy, a new report from The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM), “Resilient Communities: Empowering Older Adults in Disasters and Daily Life,” presents an innovative set of recommendations to strengthen and connect formal and informal support systems to keep older adults safe during future disasters.
A new issue brief from NYAM, “Achieving the Triple Aim in New York State: the Potential Role of Hospital Community Benefit,” is the first in a series related to promoting a better understanding of Community Benefit in New York State and how it can advance population health.
NYAM commissioned an analysis of hospital community benefit investments by New York State hospitals. The new issue brief analyzes the reported expenditures of NYS hospitals in the categories of the IRS Schedule H report.
