Community Health Project

AMPHS offers free health services every month.  The screenings assess individuals for vision problems, cardiovascular disease, dementia, HIV and Hep C risk, and respiratory conditions.  AMPHS also works with prescription providers to provide free or low-cost medications to the uninsured and referral agencies to offer free comprehensive eye exams and prescription glasses. Clients will also receive a comprehensive review of their health status and long-term counseling on recommended lifestyle changes. Social workers are also available to provide social assistance to address other socioeconomic factors barring access to healthcare. The goal is to address health and the issues barring access to healthcare holistically, such that we empower individuals to manage their health as a part of their everyday lives.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to create a streamlined and coordinate healthcare access infrastructure for the immigrant families who are currently unable to access medical services. By 2020, we aim bring comprehensive primary care services to 20,000 NYC immigrant residents. In the long term, we aim to encourage effective healthcare utilization within immigrant populations, and lower community healthcare costs by reducing unnecessary emergency room visits as an effect of proper primary care consumption.

We will accomplish our goals by 3 methods:

1) Increase community access of primary care services by organizing grassroots health services access points.
2) Encourage appropriate utilization of health services by increasing community health literacy.
3) Continually inform our decision making and evaluate our progress through integrated community public health research within our clinical programs.

AMPHS is composed of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals not only in the medical sector, but in public policy, health law, social services, fundraising, human capital development, and strategic management. In addition, as a grassroots organization, we have strong community partnerships and embed ourselves in the foundation of the communities we serve.

We have so far provided primary care access and coordination to over 3,000 NYC community members. However, the current community health system is still widely fragmented and difficult to navigate.
