Health Outreach and Education
The Jack J. Dreyfus Center for Health Action and Policy (CHAP)
CHAP is an education and policy center that works to improve the lives and care of people with kidney disease and other chronic illnesses. To improve healthcare, CHAP works with:
- Kidney disease patients, families, and care partners to provide support and education as they navigate their healthcare needs;
- Community and patient activists to educate and engage New Yorkers about kidney disease and prevent chronic illness;
- Community-based organizations to jointly provide resources for patients and families beyond their immediate healthcare needs;
- Healthcare leaders to create new models to take better care of patients; and
- Policy makers to advocate for policies that make accessing care easier and more affordable for patients.
Located at Rogosin’s Maurice R. and Corinne P. Greenberg Center for Integrative Healthcare, CHAP brings together Rogosin’s expertise in patient care, research, data analysis, prevention, and global health to promote dialogue and action to create healthier communities.
CHAP works to develop population-health models that improve health and quality of life, as well as preventing disease, with three approaches: local community engagement, public-policy efforts at the state and federal level, and broad national and global engagement.
