How H.O.P.E. Is Closing the Gap on Savannah-Chatham's Health Disparities

SAVANNAH, Ga. - July 17, 2020 - PRLog -- JULY 2020. A status report on the $3.4 Million Racial and Ethnic Approach to Community Health (REACH) grant's projects, partners and priorities.

In March 2020, everything changed. The Coronavirus crippled the American economy and many who were already living below the poverty line were hit hard. Sources of income dried up and service organizations that had helped in times past were hampered by shutdowns and emergency restrictions.

Meanwhile, in Savannah, a group of agencies and individuals working on a project called H.O.P.E. wondered what would happen to the program and to those who needed its services.

A year and a half into a CDC-funded project to reduce health disparities among African-American and Hispanic/Latino Americans in seven low-income zip codes across Chatham County, the local REACH (https://healthysavannah.org/about/reach-savannah-chatham-county/) team reports that H.O.P.E. is closing the gaps in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, and community-clinical linkages.
