Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) physicians actively educate their communities beyond standard appointment times. Wellness seminars, as well as presentations in collaboration with community-based organizations, create forums for attendees to learn about particular health topics, ask questions and engage in a communicative dialogue with our physicians. The WCM Division of Government & Community Affairs organizes these critically important opportunities to educate and expose common questions, misconceptions or concerns.
Annual as well as ad hoc educational events are held in partnership with our institutional colleagues, local elected officials and/or community-based organizations. Additionally, through a robust partnership with the New York Public Library, WCM faculty members provide educational wellness seminars at library locations across the city.
