PA-NH was founded in 2009 by a group of dedicated physicians who were concerned about health inequities in the Greater New Haven community. They partnered with local hospitals, health centers, and community organizations to explore and address the problem of inadequate access to medical care in our area. With significant input from the community, PA-NH was created to address the specific needs of Greater New Haven residents. However, it is based on a program model that was developed in 1996 and has been replicated in more than 150 communities across the country. To see what other communities are doing, please click here.
