Improve Chronic disease Outcomes through Multi-level and Multi-generational approaches Unifying Novel Interventions and Training for health EquitY
The mission of the COMMUNITY Center is to reduce health disparities in multiple chronic diseases in the New York City Region through research and sustainable interventions that incorporate individual, interpersonal, community and societal approaches.
Our vision is rooted in public health which recognizes that medical advances alone can only partially reduce the burden of disease and that reducing health disparities in chronic diseases requires improving the health and wellness of individuals, families, communities and societies throughout life.
Finding a Solution
Through research, we are partnering with communities to address the causes and effects of chronic diseases. Understanding community needs and the reasons why health disparities persist is imperative to creating a system that truly helps those who need it most. Now is the time to take action and develop interventions that make a difference.
Together we can reduce health disparities.
