The Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention (BCDP) strives to reduce the burden of chronic disease, including heart disease, obesity, cancer and diabetes, among New Yorkers. It has created and implemented programs and policies with national and international impact. BCDP is focused on shifting environments to prevent chronic disease and promote more equitable health outcomes, with a focus on poor nutrition, tobacco use and the built environment as well as increased awareness and screening for hypertension and cancer. BCDP aims to work with partners in government and in the community to employ evidence-based policies, programs, communications and research to advance its objectives.
