Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (Reach)

MSPHI serves as the external evaluator for Greenwood Leflore Hospital’s REACH project, which is funded by CDC. The REACH project aims to strengthen existing capacity to implement locally tailored evidence and practice-based improvements in the African American population. The goal is to reduce health disparities in the population in access and compliance to care in diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. A community-based participatory approach (CBPA) will unite public health and partners from various sectors of the community to address these disparities.
