I am a City Service Corp member working at the NYC-Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and on reducing health disparities and advancing equity. There are four bureaus within this division and I am working in the Early Childhood Health and Development (ECHD) unit. My project is in collaboration with a Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MMCO) to implement a set of evidence based programs, intended to promote and improve early childhood health and development, to their pediatric primary care providers.
