Harlem is a medically underserved area of New York City. Not only does the new St. Luke’s Medical Group at 147th Street meet the need for primary care and geriatric (older adult) and internal medicine, but in collaboration with St. Luke's Hospital, a full community health program that brings education and screenings directly to the community is available.
The community health outreach experts at St. Luke’s Hospital consult with leaders, elders and activists on community boards, churches, schools and senior centers to learn more about what the community wants and needs. Lectures, workshops and screenings will be offered throughout the neighborhood. For instance, we currently have a program that provides prostate cancer screening and education on site at barbershops.
In the churches, schools and elsewhere in the neighborhood, you will have access to programs of interest on the following topics:
Visit health events at St. Luke’s Hospital to get a calendar of programs such as screenings, health fairs, conferences, workshops and lectures.
