Community Health Education

Knowledge about health and wellness makes it possible for healthier lifestyle choices and better healthcare choices. The Ithaca Health Alliance works to make health information freely available.

The choices we make about how we live our lives directly affect health. Everything from diet and exercise to the environment we live in and the activities we use for personal satisfaction are factors that influence our health.

IHA sponsors and co-sponsors educational programs as opportunity allows; these are announced locally and through our online calendar. In addition to specific informational events, IHA supports free access to health information through library resources and informational resources created by IHA.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Ithaca Free Clinic will be temporarily suspending services.

This action is necessary to ensure the safety of patients, volunteers, volunteer health care providers, and staff. Once we have a better understanding of COVID-19, have the necessary protocols and protective equipment in place, and can assure our patients, volunteers, volunteer health care providers, and staff are interacting in as safe an environment as possible, the Ithaca Free Clinic will resume normal operations.

Please call “211” (1-877-211-8667) for more information on the COVID-19 Pandemic in Tompkins County, NY.

If you’re exhibiting symptoms of fever, cough, or trouble breathing, please call your primary care provider or Tompkins County Department of Health at (607) 274-6604.
