GAME CHANGERS : CHAMPIONING EQUITY IN URBAN HEALTH & WELLNESS

This program is conducted in collaboration with the SUNY Downstate John Conley Division of Medical Ethics & Humanities


FROM WHAT WE GET, WE CAN MAKE A LIVING. WHAT WE GIVE, HOWEVER, MAKES A LIFE. ARTHUR ASHE 1992


From Brett Wright & Marilyn Fraser, MD Dear Friends, It’s been almost 25 years since Arthur Ashe founded the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. In 1968, at the age of 25, Arthur Ashe changed the game of tennis by becoming the first African American male to win the US Open.

Like Arthur, we are called to be game changers and to live with humane purpose

As an Institute, we have stayed true to Arthur’s vision to improve health outcomes, through our work within various communities, as we partner with community leaders in settings such as barbershops, beauty salons, housing developments, salons and houses of worship.

1 WWW. ARTHURASHEINSTITUTE.ORG

Like Arthur, we are called to be game changers and to live with humane purpose, and to take action in our communities that are disproportionately affected by preventable diseases, violence, stress and underrepresentation of people of color in the health professions. Changing the game requires persistence, tenacity, and a call to action. We can be game changers whether we work with others to advocate for better health care, whether we march, or support those who are on the frontlines advocating for better health outcomes, or are in the trenches, informing and changing policies to improve health outcomes.

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

In addition to forever changing the game of tennis, Arthur did what many athletes had not done. He was a humanitarian and activist, who believed, as he stated “I could never forgive myself if I elected to live without humane purpose, without trying to help the poor and unfortunate, without recognizing that perhaps the purest joy in life comes with trying to help others.”

As we forge new paths for the Institute, we can also take the opportunity to reflect and are grateful to those Institute trailblazers, including staff and board members, who have laid a solid foundation upon which we can build. We look to the future with great optimism and thank you all for partnering with us along this journey.

“Arthur and I used to speak on almost a daily basis—on the state of the world, our community, everything from healthcare to politics. He inspired me and I like to think that my experience as a doctor helped hone his perspective.

“While his career was full of spectacular firsts, Arthur Ashe once said, “true heroism is rather undramatic.” He founded the Institute at Downstate to combat health disparities knowing that social determinants of health extend beyond the clinical realm, and include the intractable day-to-day barriers that poverty and racism impose. The Institute’s inclusive strategic partnerships apply research and evidence-based practices to the complexity of these day-to-day challenges. Continual cultivation and stewardship of the Institute’s academic, community and government partnerships create viable, replicable models that respond to a rapidly changing environment. I am very proud of what the Institute has accomplished in its first twenty-five years. Under new leadership, I feel confident that the Institute will carry Arthur’s vision into the next twenty-five years, continuing to assess where we are, use what we have and do what we can.” - Ruth C. Browne, SD, Former CEO 1992-2016

Research shows again and again that people get better when someone who speaks their language, understands and represents their culture and ethnicity provides their healthcare. Choosing the right messenger is as important as crafting the message and I am very proud of the cadre of salon and barbershop owners who continue to work with the Institute to empower our community and the staff and student body of the Health Science Academy. Arthur believed that if you want to save the world, ensuring a more positive future for kids has to be your first priority. I think he would be very proud to see how we are thriving at 25.” - Edward Mandeville, MD, Chair Emeritus

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

We believe that people cannot fully accept responsibility for their health without an expanded range of options. From personal care establishments, like beauty salons and barber shops, to under-resourced middle and high schools, the Institute supports potential community leaders as messengers and advocates committed to improving community health, cutting across class, age and educational level. Our work connects worlds that do not usually trust, or even talk to each other much: the institutional universe of academic medicine and day-to-day life on the block in Brooklyn’s multi-ethnic neighborhoods, those experiencing the most shocking health disparities.

“Founding the organization at Downstate meant that it would be a real thing, a physical place. The Institute was designed to help people, find new ways to have people get check-ups, take better care of their own health, and to practice preventative measures in their day-to-day lives, rather than after-the-fact heroic medical care. Arthur told me that of all the things he’d done, the Institute was his most important legacy. I knew Arthur for forty years, and hired him at HBO as a broadcaster before he died. I leave how the programs work to the Institute’s professional staff, and use my connections and experience to promote the Institute, to sell Arthur’s vision. People on the board who knew Arthur are committed to see this through. Greatness is a rare commodity, if I can help someone like Arthur remain great, it’s very compelling.” - Seth G. Abraham, General Vice Chairperson “Arthur glanced at me at a meeting with the President at Downstate about a month before he died. It was just a moment, but it was profound. I think he was saying ‘Go for it!’

If I could return Arthur’s glance now, I know he would smile. We need to push much harder with fundraising. I’m happy to see young people joining the board. ” - JoAnn Bradley, EdD, Board Secretary

The Health Science Academy graduates its first cohort of students

Looking at the survey of Academy students 25 years later, we see that many were successful. I’d like to congratulate the staff on the students’ accelerated completion rate 4.3 years for undergraduate degrees instead of the six it now takes all students nationally. I am extremely proud of the students, but would still encourage them to ‘reach out and help another.’ I’d like to see a more broad-based effort to recruit students across Brooklyn. I’m also extremely proud of the salon/barbershop initiatives.

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

I used to be asked to speak at high schools, and I would always notice the students sitting in the back, talking among themselves. I could see in the way they held themselves that they needed something more than they were getting. I said to myself, they should be learning the sciences. I went to Dr. Browne and said, “Why don’t we start an Academy?”


I went with the students to NIH in Washington, and on college trips. HSA did a great job of making them aware of opportunities such as scholarships and internships. They learned about different cultures and the program really opened their eyes to the world beyond Brooklyn, including Ivy League schools. They think they can’t reach for it, but they can. I always told them though “be sure you tell them that you are a product of public school education!” When we first started, it seemed like the HSA curriculum was mostly lecture, but it became much more hands-on. The focus on disparities gave students awareness of social issues, and exposed them to the application of what they were learning. If there is any direction I’d like to see the Academy continue, it is broadening that awareness. There are many current issues that relate to health science.” - Michelle Murray, First HSA Liaison, James Madison High School

“James Madison is a large high school, and being a liaison helped me get to know my students one on one. We were like a small family. HSA students got to know each other better too. They’d stayed in touch with me and with each other when they went away to college. The students were naturally self-motivated but I always encouraged them to “pay it forward,” and often they came back to the Academy to volunteer.

1998

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

“When I asked how many students wanted to be doctors at the College Day I organized with the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Science, all the HSA students raised their hands. The important thing about the Health Science Academy is that by being at Downstate, you get to see a range of professionals working in healthcare, and come to understand that there are many ways to serve. I remember the Academy module on the cardiovascular system where we dissected a cow’s heart, while learning about the disparities in stroke and heart attack rates in our neighborhoods. Arthur Ashe Institute introduced me to the concept of health disparities, and that made clear the path I wanted to follow. During my clinical training, I saw the faces behind those numbers. As a physician, I want to work with people who are underserved.” - Keisha Barry, MD, SUNY Downstate, HSA ‘09

AAIUH receives first NIH NCI research grant ($1.2m) advancing its community-based action research agenda in behavioral health intervention by evaluating A Soul Sense of Beauty


“The Health Science Academy’s model of preparing minority youth to enter and succeed in health science careers across disciplines is even more critical as we look forward to the Institute’s future, and the nation’s changing demographics. What excites me most is the completion of the data analysis we are currently disseminating in journal articles and presentations, foreshadowing what is possible with sufficient funding, even within an environment of budget cuts and increased competition. A survey of outcomes for over 500 HSA participants from the Academy’s founding in 1994 to the present shows that our participants complete their undergraduate degrees 1.5 years before the “new norm” of 6 years across all US students. Our graduates enter and complete medical school, but over the last 25 years, the Academy’s scope has expanded to include clinical research and a variety of allied health career paths.

The Institute celebrates its first decade of service

“I was in the Health Science Academy as a high school student. I’m grateful for the training I received to provide the best care for my patients. I wanted to be a doctor since I was about six years old. I knew I wanted to help people. As I got older, I realized that I could use science and service as social justice to help the disenfranchised and forgotten. Approximate 3% of physicians in the US are African American, though African Americans make up 13% of the US population. Additionally, African Americans historically have been denied the best health care. I work in an underserved community and I’m grateful for the opportunity to serve. AAIUH’s work to increase the numbers of minority health care professionals ultimately works to serve the underrepresented communities throughout the nation. I hope the Institute and its partners will continue Arthur Ashe’s legacy by investing in our children, our future and our health” - Joshua McHugh, MD, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, HSA ‘02 “

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

An inverted triangle represents how many more students of color must enter programming earlier to make the healthcare work force significantly more representative, and the challenges of funding and a shifting political environment are daunting. Yet we can seek opportunity within the current crisis in both healthcare and education by thinking more broadly about how we prepare more minority students, serving new populations and continuing to deepen the partnership with SUNY Downstate, local schools and a wider variety of funders to explore new career tracks within health science.” - Mary Valmont, PhD, Associate Executive Director, Health Science Academy

“I’ve been working with the Institute for 20 years. Our first project was on prostate cancer. Back then, we’d have Saturday workshops and Institute staff would bring my customers gift bags. I’ve had some of my clients for 20-30 years, some of them are now “older men” and I can direct them towards certain doctors, and give them names of insurance companies they can call. They might see prostate cancer as a death sentence, something they should keep to themselves. I can say “no it is not!” and they trust that I know what I am talking about.

ARTHUR ASHE INSTITUTE FOR URBAN HEALTH

I love that the Institute has given me the knowledge to communicate with my clients. In “Barbershop Talk”, the current barbershop project, we are talking about difficult things, but we can guide them toward resources and build on the trust we have. I feel confident and proud of that. I wish more people knew what they could have access to. In this business, there is a lot of competition, barbers look at other barbers and say, “To hell with them!” but I am grateful to the Institute for helping us build something with other shops. We’re not having Thanksgiving dinner with each other, but I am cool with them. The Institute has helped us connect and support each other around things that really matter to the community. I don’t ever want the Institute to go away.” - Nelson Urraca, Nelson’s Barber Shop, Institute partner 20 yrs “I like being able to talk to my clients about their health, to give them advice that helps them address health issues. Clients tell us things they won’t tell their doctors. I am on the Institute’s Health and Beauty Council and I want to get more salons involved to raise awareness. I see a lot of health problems in my clients and in our community.

We started with breast cancer awareness over twenty years ago. The Institute provided training, literature and videos for people to watch while they waited. One client went to the doctor for a check-up and found that she had cancer. She would not have even known, or gotten the check-up or treatment, except for the program in the salon. We have a lot of influence, as hairdressers, we can get clients to do things for themselves they might not otherwise. Going forward, I would like to see the Institute make more use of technology in the salons and social media. You can never have too much information.” - Hermione Fraser, Hermie’s Salon, Institute Member over 20 yrs

“Individuals who are stigmatized and not well informed cannot maintain their own health. We open doors to people who do not always have access. Even with all his experience, education and fame, Arthur experienced inequities in the healthcare system. By investing in health literacy, and using trusted venues to share information, we help people understand their conditions and their options and navigate the system for better outcomes. Given the legacy of the Tuskegee experiments, our role is also to rebuild community trust, helping underserved people understand the relevance of clinical research, where they fit and academia’s responsibility toward them. HSA students share an environment with people who look like them, doing jobs they aspire to. The Academy’s wraparound services provide a nurturing culture that helps students see themselves as professionals, connect the relevance of their learning to their lives. You can see it at the white coat ceremony – even their parents see them differently.

“I live and work in East Flatbush, so I get to see the effect we have in our community. The Institute is at an all time high of people going out to salons and barbershops, giving neighborhood people health information and the tools and resources they need, people calling in asking about our programs. Working here for 14 years, I love it because I get a first-hand look before everything starts, while program are implemented and the outcomes. I’ve seen the Academy expand into a real pipeline program to help high school students. More kids and parents want to know about it. We’re just putting it out there, delivering the message and because I live here, I can see the awareness in the community growing.”.- Deborah Neal, Administrative Assistant 14 yrs
