View a full history of the Institute’s milestones.
In May, the Institute opened it 30th location: the Institute for Family Health at Westchester Square, the former Access Health Center operated by AHRCHealth Care.
This year, the Institute was fortunate to receive funding to address critical population health issues in the communities we serve: funds from the Centers for Disease Control permitted us to expand our Bronx Health REACH project to the entire county; and a grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency (SAMHSA) is supporting efforts to curb opioid overdose through out our service area.
Dr. Neil Calman, president and CEO, was appointed to the prestigious National Academy of Medicine (NAM), one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine, recognizing individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. Membership in NAM will afford him the opportunity to participate in national discussions of policy and to apply his experience to our nation’s critical health problems.
The Institute opens two new health centers – Cadman Family Health Center in Brooklyn and The Institute for Family Health at 17th Street in Manhattan.
The Institute opens a new school based health center in collaboration with Harlem Children’s Zone. The health center is located at the Promise Academy II on 125th Street and Madison Avenue, and serves children in grades K-12.
