In commemoration of World AIDS Day, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene recognized Catherine M. Abate, President and CEO of CHN, for her outstanding dedication to the HIV/AIDS cause at the city’s 25th Annual World AIDS Day Awards Ceremony on November 30th.
Catherine was honored by the New York City Mayor’s Office, and was selected as one of three recipients to receive the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s prestigious award. The proclamation read:
“For your dedication combating the spread of HIV and your tremendous leadership of Community Healthcare Network. Your efforts to provide high-quality care and support to those living with HIV have made a significant difference in the lives of many New Yorkers, and we commend you on your outstanding commitment to improving their health and well-being.”
Held at Borough Hall in Brooklyn, attendees included New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner, Dr. Thomas Farley, New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Assistant Commissioner for HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control, Dr. Monica Sweeney, Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz, and Deputy Borough President, Sandra Chapman.
Community Healthcare Network Dispatched Medical Mobile Van to Rockaways to Assist Families in Need After Hurricane Sandy
In response to the ongoing power outage affecting the region, Community Healthcare Network dispatched its Medical Mobile Van to the Rockaways to provide medical services for two weeks in November.
Finding that there were residents with chronic health problems – like diabetes and hypertension – who were running low on their medications and were unable to purchase refills in the area due to closed or out-of-stock pharmacies, staff distributed medications and worked with other pharmacies to supply Rockaway residents the medications they needed.
CHN’s van travels to areas that do not have ready access to health services, and was also stationed on the Lower East Side, where power had been out after the Hurricane.
The Medical Mobile Van usually makes regular visits to schools and community organizations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, providing pediatric, adult, and adolescent medicine, and family planning services to patients.
NYC Council Members Greet Community Members at CHN’s Free Mammography Screening Event in Brooklyn
New York City Council Members Dr. Mathieu Eugene and Jumaane D. Williams joined CHN and Project Renewal at a mammography screening event on December 19th at CHN’s Caribbean House Health Center in Brooklyn.
At the event, the Council Members greeted visitors, distributed breast health education materials, and engaged women to talk about the importance of breast cancer prevention and breast health. Screenings were performed by Project Renewal, a nonprofit organization which provides health and human services to homeless men and women in New York City, and were available to women ages 40 and over.
Early detection of breast cancer saves many thousands of lives each year, and many more lives could be saved if women and their health care providers took advantage of such tests. Throughout its 11 facilities, CHN offers this critical service for free to members of underserved communities who often have little or no access to healthcare.
