Urban Health Watch ( is a project managed by the Urban League of Rhode Island and edited/run by Reza Corinne Clifton, an award-winning journalist and multimedia producer. It is funded by the Rhode Island Prevention Block Grant, a program of the Rhode Island Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Urban Heath Watch is part of a strategy to address several objectives:

– To bring health education into the community and deliver culturally appropriate messages on how to prevent and manage chronic diseases.

– To analyze, package, and disseminate public health and medical information through collaborations with traditional centers of influence that are considered trusted environments and provide accessibility to target populations.

– To build the capacity of neighborhood organizations, churches and leaders to initiate health promotion and disease prevention activities.

– To translate medical research and findings about health promotion and disease prevention into actionable steps people can use everyday in life.

– To disseminate medical research findings and best practices through the media and other sources to raise the visibility and credibility of an expanded view of health.

    The Urban Health Watch is appropriately positioned to provide credible and relevent
    health education and disease prevention information for a cross section of individuals. The information provided is relevant enough to empower and enable ordinary people to make extraordinary decisions regarding their personal, family, community and environmental health. Keep up the good work!
