As one of the poorest urban congressional districts in the country, the Bronx, a New York City borough, was also rated as the last county (#62) in New York for health outcomes and health factors by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In reaction, the Bronx Health REACH initiative formed the "#Not62," campaign to transform the health of the community.

Innovative Community Health Partnerships: Clinical Alliances to Reduce Health Disparities in Underserved Populations highlights the models of change and key initiatives developed through Bronx Health REACH's community health transformation project.

In this 22-page resource, Charmaine Ruddock, project director, Bronx Health REACH, shares the guiding principles of Bronx Health REACH's community action plan from how the coalition was built to engaging community residents using not just a community-based participatory approach but a community-directed approach.

In Innovative Community Health Partnerships: Clinical Alliances to Reduce Health Disparities in Underserved Populations, Ruddock describes the following:

  • The roles of the 70-member coalition members, which includes a very diverse group of partners and stakeholders, such as housing development groups, an economic development group, a church, an academic partner, schools and faith-based organizations, public interest lawyers and healthcare and social justice advocates;
  • Identifying the highest needs in its community and the resources required to address those needs in a very meaningful way;
  • How Bronx Health REACH used focus groups to inform its community action plan and led to its community-directed approach to transformation;
  • The key components of its nutrition initiatives, including nutrition training, access to healthy food through community bodegas and farmers' markets and a vegetable and fruit prescription program through three of its federally qualified health centers;
  • Increasing physical activity within its community through its school partnerships in terms of physical education, community playground renovations and safer sidewalks and streets;
  • Creating programs that have sustainability;
  • and much more.
