About Us

Bronx Health REACH was formed in 1999 to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health outcomes in diabetes and heart disease in African American and Latino communities in the southwest Bronx. Since then, the Bronx Health REACH coalition, led by the Institute for Family Health, has grown to include over 70 community-based organizations, health care providers, faith-based institutions, housing, and social service agencies. In 2007, Bronx Health REACH was recognized as a Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Disparities by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and began providing Legacy Project grants to other community coalitions working to eliminate disparities in healthcare. Building on the progress made over the last decade, Bronx Health REACH will continue to work with community members, coalition members, partners, and funders to eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in health outcomes once and for all.
