Weill Cornell Medicine

“Pediatricians tend to think about one patient at a time, visit by visit, child by child. Our vision, graciously supported by the RTW Foundation, is to harness data collected through these visits to improve the health of children as a population. We will do this by organizing our data and making it available to our academic physician faculty to support a variety of initiatives and to improve access to care and clinical outcomes.”

- Dr. Zachary Grinspan, interim chief of the Division of Child Neurology, director of the Pediatric Epilepsy Program, and associate professor in pediatrics and in population health sciences at Weill Cornell Medicine

Habitat for Humanity New York City

"COVID-19 may have placed us all in the same storm but we are not all in the same boat. Hard-working New York City families, particularly low-income families, have been among the hardest hit by the pandemic itself, and then again by the ensuing rent and mortgage crises."

Their partnership has been a true blessing.”
