Community engagement equips residents with the tools they need to advocate for healthy, affordable food and safer parks and public spaces in which to be physically active. In addition to shaping a neighborhood’s future, community engagement ensures that improvements are sustained over the long term. As part of its Building Healthy Communities priority area, NYSHealth is supporting a wide range of projects to advance community engagement efforts. Learn more about our work in this area:
