700,000 New Yorkers have Diabetes—almost a third don’t know they have it.
New data from the city Department Of Health indicates that diabetes rates have risen over the past 20 years. Specifically, since 1993 diabetes has increased among adult New Yorkers by 150 percent, from 4.2 percent of adults in 1993 to 10.5 percent in 2011.
The report also finds that diabetes disproportionately affects the city’s high-poverty communities, with the highest rates among Hispanic, black and South Asian New Yorkers.
Just last week, Robin Hood’s Board of Directors approved a grant to City Health Works! a start-up organization that is working to tackle the growing presence of diabetes and obesity in New York’s low-income communities. Incubated at Columbia Business School and the Earth Institute at Columbia University during 2012, City Health Works! is an innovative program that trains community health workers to implement an intensive lifestyle intervention for at risk individuals.
Their specific program has been shown to be effective in lowering weight and reducing the incidence of diabetes in adults through numerous studies. Robin Hood is particularly excited about this grant because we believe City Health Works! has the potential to address the current lack of scalable models that effectively address these health issues. Because of this, we are confident that our recent investment will have a large impact over time on our city’s health. Learn more about this exciting program here.
