Foundation has invested more than $100 million since 2006 in initiatives to
improve health care and the public health system in New York State.
Dr. Knickman has done
extensive research on issues related to the financing of health care and
long-term care and improving services for frail elders, homeless families, and
individuals with HIV. He also is the
co-author of a widely used textbook on health policy and management. Prior to joining NYSHealth,
Dr. Knickman was the vice president of research and evaluation at the Robert
