Description:

The Queens Library HealthLink Program is working with the community to improve health and increase health equity in Queens.

Queens Library HealthLink brings together community members from around the borough of Queens who plan educational programs, link their communities to health resources, and address the specific health needs of their communities.

Cancer Action Councils

Cancer Actions Councils are groups of community members and leaders who use their local knowledge to plan health programs that address their communities' needs. The council members represent the various ethnic and social groups living in their neighborhoods. Cancer Action Council members are experts on their communities, and they work together to create healthier neighborhoods. The HealthLink cancer action councils began their work in 2007, with a focus on cancer disparities. Although cancer is still a major focus, the councils have evolved to address health more broadly.
