3:30-5:00 p.m. ET
Celebrating the Past and Energizing the Future
Please join us to celebrate 20 years of the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program.
Since 1999, the REACH program has partnered with communities to reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic groups in America. The REACH program uses culturally tailored interventions to address chronic disease and preventable risk behaviors.
This live stream event will feature former CDC Director and Assistant Surgeon General, Dr. David Satcher and Dr. Leandris Liburd, director of CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Equity, who will discuss the history and past successes of the REACH program and the importance of addressing health disparities at the state and local level.
Dr. Satcher and Dr. Liburd’s presentations will be followed by a panel discussion of current and former REACH recipients who will reflect on their experiences and successes to promote health equity.
Dr. Ruth Petersen and Charmaine Ruddock, project director of Bronx Health REACH at the Institute of Family Health, will present an award in memory of Lark Galloway-Gillam, the past executive director of the Community Health Councils of Los Angeles and a founding member of the National REACH Coalition.
This event is sponsored by The Society for Public Health Education and will be live streamed on May 7, 2019 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. ET.
