Health

Endeleo approaches community and population health through the lens of community engaged research (CEnR). The past four years have fostered partnership with academic and research institutions to address the root causes of health outcomes that exist in community, outside of the doctor’s office. In Washington Heights, the social determinants of health (access to healthy food and medication, decent housing, economic development, quality education, safe, walkable communities, air quality, living wage employment, access to capital,) are the conditions most responsible for the health inequities that Endeleo addresses through programming rooted in community-based participatory research (CBPR).

REACH

REACH (Research & Education for African-American Caregiver Health) to Faith is the collaborative between The Endeleo Institute, Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and seven African-American churches. This collaboration provides reasearch-based tools and techniques for the African-American experience in caregiving for those living with Alzheimer's disease and Demenita.
