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 Health aim to apply our scientific and clinical strengths to support the health needs of the broader community.
Growing out of our Community Health Needs Assessment and aligning with the New York State Prevention Agenda and New York City and Nassau County public health priorities, our three-year implementation plan, also known as our Community Service Plan, focuses on preventing chronic conditions by promoting healthy eating and food security, decreasing tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke, addressing the intersection of health and housing, supporting the self-management of chronic conditions, and connecting people to resources that address social and health risk factors.
The Community Service Plan also promotes healthy women, infants, and children through parenting programs that connect families to needed resources, and through early childhood and teen pregnancy prevention programs. We also have an emerging portfolio of projects that focus on promoting a healthy and safe environment by reducing falls among vulnerable populations.
Through 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, including the Lower East Side and Chinatown, in Manhattan; Sunset Park and Red Hook, in Brooklyn; and in Hempstead, Long Island.
Our community-based and government partners span early childhood education settings and schools, as well as primary care, housing, and community settings, such as faith-based organizations, and local businesses.
