NYAM's Health Policy team works to improve public health by bringing together researchers, policymakers, community members, and key stakeholders to develop evidence-based solutions to the root causes of poor health outcomes. NYAM develops and supports policies and programs that promote healthy aging, prevent chronic disease and promote health, and reduce health disparities in New York City and across New York State. Much of our policy work focuses on aligning the actions of communities, government, and leaders from multiple sectors to transform the places where we live, work, and play into environments that promote health.
