As part of our 2019 Health Initiative, the Chamber, in concert with The City College of New York and Columbia University Medical Center, has presented two of a three part series of events centered on The Opioid Crisis.

As part of our 9th Annual National Urban Health Conference, the second in the series took place on May 15 at The Forum on Columbia University's Manhattanville Campus.  The theme of the conference “The Opioid Crisis: Opioid Earthquake & Aftershock Effects” featured distinguished panelists and keynote presenters from the fields of medicine, education, finance, religion and social service in a discussion that allowed all participants to examine and review the vital role that we all must play in the decision making processes that shape our health agenda.

The full schedule of events and the Program from the May 15th event with presenters and panelists follow:

  

  

Healthy Living & Healthy Eating is a year round initiative of the GHCC Health Committee. In partnership with its member hospitals, health plans, HMO’s, health professionals, educational institutions, media partners, food service providers, recreational facilities, senior centers, elected officials, government agencies and the office of the Mayor of the City of New York, the Healthy Living & Healthy Eating campaign was created to help the residents, families, students, workers and businesses located in Upper Manhattan to live healthier, happier and more productive lives.

 GHCC recognizes the major positive economic impact on our businesses when its customer base and employees are healthy. The Health Committee of GHCC is comprised of doctors, health practitioners, educators, hospitals, educational institutions, HMO’s, health service providers and professional health service organizations.


Among its many accomplishments the Health Committee of GHCC created The National Urban Health Conference, held annually in the Spring; launched International Wellness in conjunction with The New York Academy of Medicine and the World Health Organization; annually hosts the NYC Economic Development Day Health Conference, the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run/Walk; and supports the NYS Office of General Services twice weekly, spring, summer & fall outdoor, public Farmers Market (featuring fresh produce, herbs, baked goods, etc.) on the plaza of the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building.
