The Coalition

The DASH-NY Coalition is housed at The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) in New York City. The Coalition was launched through support from the New York State Department of Health in July 2010 to convene a multi-sector group of members who are committed to ending the epidemic of obesity in New York State through policy-level change. The Coalition is staffed by NYAM employees who support, facilitate, and convene the Coalition.

DASH-NY Steering Committee



Member Organizations contribute to the creation of DASH-NY’s policy priorities and action plan through workgroup participation and can utilize the Coalition network to raise awareness of emerging issues and trends in chronic disease prevention. Partner Organization members should share DASH-NY’s vision for a strong and healthy New York, as well as contribute to advancing the policy priorities. If you are interested in joining, contact us at
