The Staten Island Partnership for Community Wellness (SIPCW) is serving as a Borough Lead Organization for the Partnership for a Healthier New York City. The Partnership, funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Community Transformation Grant (CTG) received by the New York City Health Department, aims to improve the health outcomes by preventing the leading causes of death and disability across the life span for all New Yorkers, particularly those who experience disparities in health.
As borough lead, SIPCW is organizing and leading a borough-wide coalition of community partners that will work with the Partnership to identify and implement evidence-based and innovative health promotion strategies, specifically for the following areas:
The Partnership for a Healthier Staten Island’s PhotoVoice project gives Staten Island youth a voice to express their thoughts on Alcohol, Tobacco and Sugar Sweetened Beverage marketing. Youth are bombarded with ads for unhealthy items at local stores each and every day. Check out our Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/inyourneighborhoodsi.
The SIPCW’s active design workgroup is working hard to make the active choice the easier choice for all Staten Islanders. Current projects the group is working are include improving bicyclist conditions at the SI Ferry and sponsoring a Playstreet for the Summer of 2013. The group meets monthly and always welcomes new members. Email Laila for more information.
