Every month, NCI profiles a local care manager to help the community learn more about the valuable role they play in our region’s healthcare system.
The “Care Manager of the Month” for November 2017 is Netty Diaz!
Netty has worked for St. Lawrence County Community Services as a Case Manager for the past eleven years. To get to know her better, we spoke with Netty and asked her a few questions about herself and her job:
Q1: Where are you from?
“I am originally from Puerto Rico. I moved to St. Lawrence County approximately 13 years ago.”

Q3: What do you like most about Care Management?
“Providing community and home-based services. I enjoy seeing the progress that individuals and their families make. I also enjoy the fact that no two days are the same. I thrive off constant change. Seeing individuals in their own environment is invaluable.”
Q4: What do you like to do outside of work?
“I enjoy traveling. I also like spending time with my family. I have two sons — Cody, who is 28-years-old and lives in Connecticut, and Shane, who is 22-years-old and lives in Rochester (Nazareth).”
