HELP Make a Difference
Health Education Learning Program is a non-profit organization based in New York City aimed at helping underserved residents of New York City live a healthier life through health education and community outreach programs, including, but not limited to, diabetes screening and blood pressure monitoring.
We are keenly aware that there are a vast number of individuals who lack access to the resources necessary for obtaining regular health screenings that are essential for their overall health and well-being. In addition, many individuals lack the knowledge necessary to manage and maintain their health and learn about effective strategies and mechanisms to enable them to improve their health. It is our mission to provide the resources necessary for them to adequately maintain their health and ensure they stay well-informed about their health in order to live a longer and more fulfilling life.
What We Do
To keep underserved
residents of New York City informed, HELP conducts charitable and educational
activities on a monthly basis.
Our activities include:
- Ask Dr. Tommy O Health Education TV Show – This program is designed to enrich
the community at large with health education. Watch a recent Ask Dr. Tommy O
show about bullying.
- Community Health Advocate – This is a lecture series on health-related topics.
Lectures typically last about one to two hours and includes a question and
answer session. It is open to individuals of all ages.
- Community Health Screenings – This program provides health screenings in underserved communities within the five Boroughs of New York City. We conduct blood pressure monitoring and diabetes screening on a quarterly basis.
