  • Neighborhood intersection undergoes makeover

    The Post

    Sept. 12, 2018 - The intersection at Parsells Avenue and Greeley Street in Rochester recently transformed from a broad straightaway to a pedestrian oasis complete with colorful crosswalks, realigned curbs, a large mural in the center and painted cardboard box sculptures to represent potential permanent art installations. Data collected by Common Ground Health indicates that Beechwood residents are more likely to go to a hospital emergency department for pedestrian- and cyclist-related crashes than other areas in the city. “The support of neighborhood partners is inspiring and critical to the long-term success of the makeover,” said Mike Bulger, healthy communities project coordinator at Common Ground.

    Aug. 22, 2018 - More than 1 million people spread across Rochester’s nine-county region share a lot of similarities and notable differences when it comes to their individual health. There is data available on some of it and there will be more, thanks to a survey conducted by Common Ground Health. “We’re really trying to understand: why are people having certain challenges with their health?” said Marc Solomon, a senior research associate at Common round. “The broader of a response we get from the population in our counties, the more likely we're able to find those areas where small investments have much bigger outcomes,” said Dr. Thomas Mahoney, chief medical officer for Common Ground.
