Did you know today is National Condom Awareness day!!! I guess this is an appropriate day!!! 😉 In recognition of this day, NYC Health Department today launched ARTCondomNYC, a series of four, limited-edition NYC Condom wrappers designed by contemporary artists. The first wrapper is designed by artist and community advocate David John Attyah. Last year the health department distributed 30 million condoms. If you want to know what’s going on in NYC, do the math, 30mill/365days. NY’ers are busy!!! #besafe#condomswork#safesex#nycdohmh#playsure#endingtheepidemic#uberlube#havefunbesafe#youngmentakenotice
A recent collaboration with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The goal was to design a small campaign, to send to a large list of health professionals across the city to help identify the onset of First Episode Psychosis (FEP) and encourage them to utilize existing mental health resources. #nychealth#nycdohmh#FEP#graphicdesign#brochuredesign#printdesign
Very proud to work with the Canadian Consulate General of NY and the Consulate staff. Proud to say they recognize that the Canadian citizens need their support in every area of their lives! Great job Canadian Consulate NY!
Shout out to the Clinical-Community Program Linkages team. I'm sad to be leaving the DOH today, but even sadder to leave these wonderful people behind. I don't think I could have imagined starting my career with a better organization or a better group of people. When I think leader, innovator, or trailblazer- I think of these ladies. Looking forward to taking what they've taught me and making a big impact in my next step, wherever that may be. #thankyou#NYCDOHMH#publichealth#mustache

Twinning with one of my supervisors today. I can't explain who wonderfully supportive my mentors at NYC's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene have been. They've given me a lot of independence with enough guidance to do the project they had in mind for me before I came out here. I'm trying not to get attached, but it's hard not to when you receive so much support and encouragement from people who believe in you. ⭐️❤️ #latinas#CCPLteam#nycdohmh
True story, this happened last night: The man pointing in this picture is Frankie, and he wanted to fight me 10 minutes before this shot was taken. On the streets of Manhattan, I didn't move out of the way as he walked by, so he felt disrespected and immediately got confrontational and threatened me with violence. I was with my friend Millie and we both said, "nah", and walked away- but even as the guy got more and more distant, I could see that he was still cursing out loud and rambling to himself. I wanted to know wtf he was so upset about, because it was bigger than our altercation. As I ran back over to where he was, he approached me and started apologizing before I could even say anything. I asked him why he was so upset, turns out he and his wife just lost their housing that day and are now sleeping on the streets. It's also difficult to find shelters that take couples, and ones that let you bring in large items(Frankie and his wife had two suitcases with them). I wanted to share this story because I believe compassion is important, especially when it's hard to give, like when someone is trying to attack you. I think most people who lash out and hurt others are probably hurt themselves....Frankie gave me his rosary beads and I gave him my Buddhist prayer bracelet, so we're cool now✌️... Frankie also gave me his email, and I'm going to send him any information I can find about getting housing in NYC. If you have any information or resources you would like to share, please leave a comment or send me a message!😁 #endhomelessness#nyc#manhattan#lovethyneighbor#selfie#nycdohmh#swordstoplowshares
