Campaign for a Healthy Bronx featured NYLPI Senior Staff Attorney Melissa Iachan and public health experts on April 30 to address how environmental racism contributes to serious health disparities in the Bronx. Community members, activists and advocates attended the event to engage in a conversation about how to make structural changes aimed at turning around decades of disproportionate negative health impacts in the Bronx, where residents are suffering particularly high death rates and intensive care needs as a result of COVID-19.
