Last month, the Bronx Health REACH Coalition’s Health Disparities Workgroup met with Mayor de Blasio to discuss the need for his administration to prioritize the Bronx in response to its persistent last place ranking in health outcomes among New York’s 62 counties.

Over 50 people attended a #Not62 Rally on the steps of New York City Hall to demand that the state’s elected officials make the health of the Bronx a top priority.
