The Details

You're Invited! View Photos by East Harlem NYCHA Residents (Community Service Society)




Harlem Health Advocacy Partners demonstration project pairs Community Health Workers with CSS Health Advocates to help reduce disparities in chronic diseases among New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) residents in East and Central Harlem and improve their long-term health and quality-of-life.

What is Photovoice? 

Over the course of 6 weeks in April and May, twenty-six residents from NYHCA developments in East and Central Harlem met in groups to discuss how they stay healthy; they were then asked to showcase their experience through photographs.  Residents identified the photographs that best express what healthy looks like in their neighborhoods, as well as the barriers to health they experienced.

The PhotoVoice images serve to raise awareness in support of further advocacy to eliminate barriers to health in East and Central Harlem, and to highlight the community in all its richness and vibrancy.
