Fullilove will support additional initiatives associated with the Wellness Center by deepening relationships with local Church-Based Organizations (CBOs). He will also expand the Center’s community health programming to include other marginalized groups, such as formerly incarcerated residents who have shown leadership in community advocacy.

In addition, Fullilove will provide leadership in reforming the current Wellness Center model that focuses on Community Health Worker (CHW) training. He is looking forward to building a larger group of well-trained CHWs. They will become on-the-ground partners in advancing community health (physical and mental) and addressing social determinants of health. These trusted CHWs will deliver the community benefit with ever greater penetration.

“After more than three decades of doing community public health in Harlem and Washington Heights, I am thrilled with the opportunity to join the Columbia Wellness Center and its tireless efforts to promote the efforts of community health workers to promote health and prevent disease in communities of color,” said Fullilove of the opportunity.
