REACH Su ComunidadConsortium (RSC)


A five year REACH (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health) cooperative agreement\subcontract to help reduce health disparities and improve health through community efforts in six States. This project began November 1, 2012. We are partnering with Hidalgo Medical Services, University of Texas and the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association in the REACH: Su Comunidad Consortium to address health disparities in nutrition, physical activity and healthy weight among Hispanics/Latinos in six states. The four organizations have developed the REACH: Su Comunidad Consortium to address health disparities in nutrition, physical activity and healthy weight among Hispanics/Latinos in the six states.  The Consortium will sub-award funds to fifteen sub-recipient communities and provide intensive training and technical assistance. Using a Community Health Worker (CHW) model, the Consortium will help sub-recipient communities to develop or expand multi-sector community leadership teams, conduct community assessments and develop and implement community action plans that utilize relevant policy, systems and environmental (PSE) strategies to promote nutrition, physical activity and healthy weight.
