Health Promotion, Maintenance and Disease Prevention in the Community

 

 While life is a gift and health is a privilege, both is a human right of which we have a responsibility. As nurses, one of our greatest challenges, is to promote and maintain health as a first single step to disease prevention in the community through Health Education. We will feature a comprehensive listing of diseases and health education.

New York State Budget Update

State lawmakers have returned to Albany and are on track to pass the state budget today.  And while the negotiating process was at times disheartening, we are happy to report that your actions – emails, office visits, letters and calls – helped protect funding for programs critical for heart disease and stroke.

Earlier this year, we told you about efforts to consolidate many programs…which means the public wouldn't have a good sense of how funds are being spent.  Fortunately, the final budget rejects attempts to consolidate and maintains funding at last year's levels for:          

  • The Tobacco Control Program
  • Obesity and Diabetes Prevention funds
  • The Healthy Heart Program
  • The Childhood Obesity Prevention Program
  • The Cardiac Services program
  • Emergency Medical Services    

And we know funding is critical:  Heart disease and stroke are the number one and four killers of New Yorkers.
