CCPH’s newest Featured Member is Gail Newton! Gail is Director of Community Health Partnerships, Center for Community Health at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). Community health is an important mission of URMC along with patient care, education, research and service outreach programs. Gail has been facilitating partnerships between communities and academia for the past thirteen years at Rochester and at the Medical College of Wisconsin prior to that. During the nineteen years in total that she has been involved in community-campus partnerships and an active member of CCPH since 1997, Gail’s guiding philosophy has been to “listen more” and “talk less” at community tables relying on CCPH’s Principles of Partnership to advise her work. Gail has also chaired the CCPH-CTSA Member Interest Group for several years and is a wonderful leader committed to inclusion, capacity building, and sharing openly.

Gail mentions the significance of her Rochester locale and its efforts to improve the health of its community since the history of the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) dates back to the Medical Center’s official benefactor, George Eastman, founder of the Eastman Kodak Company. In the early 1900s, Eastman agreed to fund a medical school with the caveat that the school use its skills and talents “to make Rochester one of the healthiest communities in the world.” The building that the Center for Community Health is located is named after George Eastman and his lofty vision was for Rochester to be the healthiest city in the world.
