Community Health Needs Assessment & Community Service Plan
In addition to providing the highest quality care for patients at our primary locations, we at NYU Langone Medical Center aim to apply our scientific and clinical strengths to support the health needs of the broader community.
Through the Community Health Needs Assessment and the partnerships outlined in our Community Service Plan, we seek to create a platform for evidence-based health promotion and disease prevention at the neighborhood level, fostering healthy behavior change and reducing risk factors for disease.
Aligning with New York State Prevention Agenda and New York City public health priorities, our three-year Community Service Plan focuses on preventing chronic diseases by reducing risk factors for obesity and reducing tobacco use, and promoting healthy women, infants, and children through parenting, early childhood, and teen pregnancy prevention programs. Our work and our partnerships are centered on the Lower East Side and Chinatown, Manhattan, and Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
Our community-based and government partners span early childhood education settings and schools, health centers, housing developments, community development organizations, faith-based organizations, and local businesses.
