Take Care New York 2020
Working together to reduce health inequities on Staten Island
Take Care New York 2020 (TCNY2020) is the City’s blueprint for giving everyone the chance to live a healthier life. Its goal is twofold — to improve every community’s health, and to make greater strides in groups with the worst health outcomes, so that our city becomes a more equitable place for everyone. Unlike previous Take Care New York plans, TCNY 2020 looks at traditional health factors as well as social factors, like how many people in a community graduated from high school or go to jail.
Through TCNY 2020, SIPCW brought together over 130 community members to in Stapleton and Park Hill to engage in thoughtful and meaningful conversations about their experiences with health disparities. Following the convenings SIPCW created an action plan to address issues and is actively seeking funding.
