The Joan H. Tisch Community Health Prize

Centered at Hunter’s Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute, the Joan H. Community Health Prize offers $10,000 to both an individual and an organization in recognition of distinguished accomplishment in the field of urban public health. Those honored since the program began in 2011 have included people and groups addressing health inequities in treatment, food insecurity, behavioral health, and access to services for the immigrant community and the aging. Past Tisch-sponsored programs have also supported a research fellow and public health focused public-forums.
