Over the course of 6 weeks in April and May, twenty-six residents from NYHCA developments in East and Central Harlem met in groups to discuss how they stay healthy; they were then asked to showcase their experience through photographs.

The PhotoVoice images serve to raise awareness in support of further advocacy to eliminate barriers to health in East and Central Harlem, and to highlight the community in all its richness and vibrancy.
