Ambulatory Care Network Community Programs

Community Health Nursing - Faith Based Partnership Program

The NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Ambulatory Care Network's Community Health Nursing - Faith Based Partnership Program partners with faith-based organizations to improve the health of members in these organizations and the community. This important undertaking provides a number of health care and health promotion services.

Mission and Goals

The Program aims to develop partnerships with faith-based and community-based organizations in Harlem that desire to improve the health of their members, neighbors, and community. Members of these groups expand the dialogue to members in other groups, therefore transforming and revitalizing the community's approaches to disease prevention and health promotion.
