There are 62
counties in New York State. Every year, a study is done
which measures the
critical role that non-health related factors like
education, employment, income and the environment play in
how healthy we are and how long we will live. Sadly, Bronx
County is ranked in last place or 62 out of 62.
In response to this, in order to improve the health outcomes
in the Bronx, Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. along with others, have launched #Not62.

orientation, and gender identity. Information will
inform resources to support parents in talking with their
teens about these topics, and we believe it is very

various venues and run April 2 - April 24, 2019.
