East Harlem, New York – June 25, 2021 – Little Sisters of the Assumption Family Health Service (LSA) is pleased to announce a new partnership with Pfizer Inc, one of the world’s premier biopharmaceutical companies. Pfizer, through its Multicultural Health Equity Collective, will join LSA in a new initiative to improve health equity for the underserved. Pfizer will fund
and participate in a variety of educational initiatives, including a webinar and virtual health fair spotlighting topics in health and vaccine equity in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This strategic partnership will encompass a variety of initiatives leveraging Pfizer’s deep knowledge base in health equity and health care delivery and LSA’s commitment to quality care for all individuals, regardless of race, gender, religion, income, lifestyle, or nation of origin. As part of the collaboration, LSA will work with Pfizer to present a Pfizer Rx Pathways webinar, communicate to Latinx families through our virtual health fair and distribute Pfizer Rx Pathways program materials directly to the community through the food pantry to improve understanding of core issues in health equity.
“Family health and well-being is our core mission and is always front and center for LSA. We’re honored to partner with Pfizer,” said Reada Bunin Edelstein, former CEO of LSA Family Health Service. “We’ve seen firsthand the inequitable impacts that COVID-19 has had on communities like our own, part of which are the barriers that exist in accessing everyday health care.
Partnering with Pfizer provides us with the opportunity to help close some of these inequities and improve the lives of the children and families in East Harlem.”
