CUNY Institute for Health Equity
The CUNY Institute for Health Equity (C.I.H.E.) was established to narrow the current gaps in the health status of New York City's underserved ethnic/racial populations. C.H.I.E. will work to identify and respond to the social determinants of health that contribute to the high rates of morbidity and mortality among these populations; provide technical support to its community partners so that they may better serve their respective communities and educate public health students in the importance of addressing health equity. The knowledge obtained through C.H.I.E.'s work will be analyzed, translated and disseminated to the public so that these issues may be more effectively addressed.
