Brooklyn, New York – On Wednesday, August 21st, New York State Senator Kevin Parker visited the Brightpoint Church Avenue Health Center, a member of Hudson River Health Care (HRHCare), located in Brooklyn’s Flatbush neighborhood. Joined by HRHCare and Brightpoint staff and Cheryl Hall of the Caribbean Women’s Health Association, newly affiliated with HRHCare, Senator Parker was able to learn more about the vital impact the health center has on the community through the high-quality medical and social services it provides.
“In honor of National Wellness Month, I took the time to revisit Brightpoint Health’s Church Avenue location,” said NYS Senator Kevin Parker. “I applaud all the staff at Brightpoint for working every day to provide quality integrated health care and social support services for New Yorkers based in my district and the surrounding areas.”
“We are pleased to host Senator Kevin Parker at our Church Avenue Community Health Center to showcase our health home, women’s health, and primary care services,” said Anne Kauffman Nolon, CEO of HRHCare. “We appreciate the Senator’s leadership in the state on care for patients living with diabetes, sickle cell, and other chronic illnesses, and the dire need for affordable housing in the 21st District.”
“Senator Parker emphasized his commitment to our staff and patients to work at the State level to increase funding which would allow HRHCare/Brightpoint to continue to improve access to care in the community he serves,” said Cheryl Hall, Executive Director, Caribbean Women’s Health Association.
