Beethoven, O’Bama and `Bending the Curve′” topic of Binghamton University Forum


BINGHAMTON, NY -- Daniel Sisto, president of the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), will discuss “Beethoven, O’Bama and ‘Bending the Curve’” on Thursday, December 17, at the Binghamton Forum luncheon held in the Old Union Hall of the University Union.  The lunch buffet begins at 12:00 p.m. with Sisto’s discussion following promptly at 12:30 p.m.  The focus will be on one of today’s most profound and transformational issues:  healthcare.

Sisto has led the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS), which represents more than 550 nonprofit and public hospitals, nursing homes, homecare agencies and other healthcare organizations.  HANYS is the only such statewide organization in New York.   Sisto serves on numerous task forces of the American Hospital Association and an array of New York state policy bodies.  Under his leadership, HANYS has developed a national reputation for its expertise in data management, effective state and federal advocacy, and coalition building with diverse national interests.

Sisto joined the HANYS staff in 1984 as senior vice president and chief operating officer of its consulting arm.  He was appointed president of the association in 1986.  HANYS’ mission is to advance the health of individuals and communities by providing leadership, representation, and service to health providers and systems across the entire continuum of care.  HANYS works with the American Hospital Association, New York’s regional hospital/healthcare associations, and a powerful network of outside lobbyist and policy experts.  As strategic need arises, HANYS allies with other healthcare organizations, consumer and labor groups, and others to advance solutions to workforce shortage, the rising number of uninsured and improving community health status.

The Binghamton University Forum serves business, professional and community leaders by bringing nationally known authorities to speak at functions throughout the year.  For more information, call the Forum office at (607) 777-4390.
