The Katz Institute for Women’s Health provides services and programs to support a woman’s health journey throughout each stage of life. Essential components include our physical as well as our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Your funds will help the Katz Institute embed much needed mental health resources into our clinical offerings, including programs for women’s cancer, heart, GI, pelvic health and OB GYN. Your funds will also benefit the Katz Innovation Grant Program, which supports projects and innovative research efforts focused on improving women’s health.
Child and Adolescent Mental Health: Nearly one in five children has an emotional, behavioral or mental disorder. Sadly, only 20% of those diagnosed receive care. Cohen Children’s Medical Center is committed to addressing this growing crisis head on by creating an entirely new model of behavioral health for children. Funds from the Northwell Health Walk at Jones Beach will expand pediatric behavioral health services across Northwell's footprint, including creating a preeminent Child and Adolescent Mental Health Pavilion that will bridge the gap between physical and mental health services for children.
The Chairman’s Research Award: Funds for the Walk also fuel groundbreaking research at Cohen Children’s Medical Center through the Chairman’s Research Award. This award gives junior faculty and fellows the opportunity to tackle promising leads in nearly a dozen subspecialities at the children’s hospital. Every dollar you raise will empower our clinicians and scientists to innovate, push boundaries and contribute to a new, brighter chapter in pediatric health.
