Take Care New York 2020 (TCNY 2020, PDF) is the City’s blueprint for giving everyone the chance to live a healthier life. Its goal is twofold — to improve every community’s health, and to make greater strides in groups with the worst health outcomes, so that our city becomes a more equitable place for everyone. Unlike previous Take Care New York plans, TCNY 2020 looks at traditional health factors as well as social factors, like how many people in a community graduated from high school or go to jail.
The second phase of the program involves developing action plans to improve the health issues identified in the community meetings and bring them to implementation by awarding grants to local community based organizations. Our next TCNY 2020 meeting in Queens is on Saturday, February 6 at the Jamaica Library from 12pm-2pm.
