The most populated areas of this region are served by the Syracuse-based Centro bus service. Upstate banners appear on the sides of some of these buses. Being at eye level, the advertisements dominate. Many people see the banners, as the buses travel hundreds of miles per day. Upstate has a broad reach.
This issue of Upstate Health illustrates that reach and the breadth of what we do with the variety of our articles.
You’ll find stories about the medical care we provide and the research in which we’re engaged, plus a peek at our new Upstate Cancer Center. Some of our experts share their advice. (Too much calcium? Signs of autism? Need to burn 600 calories?) You will also meet some students – some of whom traveled to other continents as volunteers and a pair who developed a case of puppy love as residents of downtown Syracuse.
You will learn how Tony-winning actress, Jessie Mueller got her start at Upstate, why nurse Sarah Martin loves kayaking, what author Walt Wasilewski learned while researching his book about spiritual care, and the question every doctor will ask him- or herself eventually.
We hope you enjoy making Health part of your life.
