Education & Outreach
The STAR Health Center is part of the central Brooklyn community, and many of our staff live right in the neighborhoods surrounding SUNY Downstate. We understand trends in health problems and which diseases affect who most often. We partner with other organizations to develop education and outreach strategies which will reach those most in need so we can all improve Brooklyn health outcomes.
The Adolescent Education Program is one of the oldest STAR Program projects, established in 1989. Its mission is to empower youth to achieve and maintain good health, set and achieve academic goals, and serve their communities.
