The territory extends from Ulster and Duchess counties east to the Green Mountains, west to Oneida County and north to the American/Canadian border. The Association is comprised of dedicated volunteers including patients, family members of patients, and health care professionals.

Big changes happened in February of 2010, when BDANENY opened the doors to our first office, and later that year hired our first employee. Pictured to the left Board Members and members cut the ribbon to our new office with the help of Rensselaer County Executive, Kathy Jimino.
