#NHCW15 Photo of the Day: Fighting for Health Equality

New York, NY (August 13, 2015) – As we continue to celebrate this year’s National Health Center Week by sharing a photo a day, today’s photo is a bit of a “Throwback Thursday.” Through our Bronx Health REACH project we work to address health disparities in key health areas. The coalition includes over 70 community-based organizations, health care providers, faith-based institutions, housing and social service agencies, and a public interest law firm. Since 2000, the coalition has served as a model of community empowerment that demonstrates how to build healthier communities by:

  • promoting healthy life-style behaviors
  • increasing awareness of racial and ethnic disparities in health care delivery
  • advocating for policy, environmental, and systems changes
