About the Dalio Center for Health Justice
The Dalio Center for Health Justice at NewYork-Presbyterian, launched in October 2020, aims to understand and address the root causes of health inequities with the goal of setting a new standard of health for our patients, our team members, and the communities we serve. Through the Dalio Center, we invest in research, education, and programing, and advocate for policy change to drive measurable improvements in health outcomes for all. Because 80% of health outcomes are driven by social, behavioral, and environmental causes, our work is not limited to addressing health care access and quality. We will also support community initiatives, understanding and championing economic empowerment, social engagement, workforce development, neighborhood revitalization, and education.
In order to understand the health outcomes that disproportionately affect our communities, we are building on a network of ongoing projects and initiatives across NewYork-Presbyterian and our academic partners, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Weill Cornell Medicine. The Dalio Center will harness the power of our three institutions, expanding our capacity to create impact. In partnership with NYP’s Community Mission and Health Justice Committee of NYP’s Board of Trustees, local community organizations, and government agencies, we will make real progress in eliminating the health inequities that undermine our communities.
The Dalio Center has organized its work into four key strategic areas illustrated in the house: Data & Infrastructure, Clinical and Community Strategy, Research, and Leadership & Education. This report provides a summary of project work completed in 2021 for each strategic area, as well as plans for next year.
