Ithaca Health Alliance Newsletter

The Ithaca Health Alliance publishes a newsletter in which we provide a variety of different health resources. In order to keep the newsletter going strong, we invite people to volunteer with us and also invite community members with health expertise to contribute to the newsletter. If you would like to write a piece for an upcoming issue, please contact us.

The IHA newsletter is free. Printed copies can be found at the Ithaca Free Clinic or in many coffeeshops, bookstores and other locations in Tompkins County. You can download PDF versions of the newsletter from this page.
