Health Equity in NYC
In New York City, there are two million people living in poverty. Racial, ethnic, economic and other social inequalities contribute to overall health and well-being. Socioeconomic status is both a strong predictor of health and a key factor underlying health inequities.
Our work promotes health equity among low-income populations throughout New York City. Our approach is multi-fold and touches many of the issues that affect health among the city’s underserved communities.
