El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice has received many awards as a national community and human rights school model and is at the forefront of the nation’s Small School Movement. CHE’s predecessors have not only garnered such outstanding awards as the NYS Governor’s Decade of the Child Award for leading the state in childhood immunization campaigns and the NYC Department of Health’s Excellence in Public Health Award but have also co-founded the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance. CHE is embarking on a plan to open a family health center clinic in 2004. Using volunteer medical personnel, CHE health promoters, and making the most of existing health resources, the office is dedicated to creating a holistic service that addresses the most pressing needs of the community. Some of the services to be offered are holistic health assessments, nutritional counsel, heart disease screenings, asthma screenings, diabetes management peer groups, and many other vital services.
