Message from the Chair
The Institute of Medicine Report on Primary Care and Public Health cited a number of initiatives, notably in New York City, as best practice examples to improve the health of populations. We have learned over the years that improving the health of populations must take us out of the ivory tower of the academic health center to the core of the communities we serve and that we must partner with other agencies to address the social determinants of health, promote health and make resources easily accessible to children and families. Our Obesity Prevention program, Latch-ON, and Teens in NYC are three marvelous examples of the efforts happening at MICH, all of which entailed collaboration with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.  Read More >
