The New York State Department of Health, Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities, and the New York State Minority Health Council convened community listening sessions in New York State in 2015, in areas legislatively defined as minority areas. These are areas with 40 percent, or greater, racial and ethnic populations – which bear a disproportionate burden of poor health. The listening sessions provided a platform for community members to voice their concerns on health and access to health care, and allowed public health officials to listen to the concerns of residents. See some of the results and efforts to date.
