We are fortunate to have AAA as one of our community partners. This is the eighth year that AAA and their amazing facilitator Karen Blackburn have provided a comprehensive Pedestrian Safety Workshops at the CHCCC. They provide a seminar for parents as well as one geared to young children that utilize puppets and Otto the Auto to better convey the safety message.

The dedicated and hard working NYC Tech nurses headed by Peggy Rafferty ( right) an Associate Professor in the Department of Nursing who teaches Comprehensive Client Care for Urban Health Issues in the fourth semester of the Baccalaureate Program.

The nurses spend every Wednesday morning at our site with Ana Legueros an adjunct professor. They review the children’s medical records and help us understand the doctor’s recommendations so we can follow up and ascertain that parents keep all follow-up appointments. They also facilitate workshops to address health issues identified in our Head Start children and families and the Cypress Hills Community. In addition, they attend our Health Advisory Committee, share their knowledge and expertise with the group, and participate in our Annual Health Fair.
