The CDRI began in June 2020 with a partnership between Georgia State University (GSU) and Success Dynamics, Inc. and focuses on reducing coronavirus infection rate disparities. Minorities are impacted at a much higher rate than other populations due to a lack of resources, education, and Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) such as masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, ventilators, and other protective equipment. Through this partnership between GSU and SDI, community partnerships within the faith community, educational institutions, government entities, and health-focused organizations are being leveraged to provide needed PPE and COVID testing resources to the communities that are most at risk. Contact us today to learn more about how you can join our partnership.
In partnership with Success Dynamics, Inc, the “Pink Panel” is a partnership between Georgia State University (GSU), clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, and community stakeholders that envision closing the disparity gap in Breast Cancer Mortality in the Fulton and Dekalb counties. As a result of research revealing the highest breast cancer mortality rates in Fulton and Dekalb Counties, SDI has activated its community partnerships within the faith-based community to identify high-risk individuals, facilitate breast cancer screenings and increase awareness of the heightened mortality rates and treatment options. This panel has formulated a plan for intervention and its implementation in the community with measurable outcomes.
Communities in Action
The CHAP program is designed to serve as a model in health service intervention for underserved residents of the state. A partnership was formed between the NC Office of Minority Health & Health Disparities and community and faith-based organizations to work together in an effort to “close the gaps” to health care in underserved communities while reaching out to replicate the process across the state. Success Dynamics CDC provided the leadership in developing partnerships among more than 25 faith-based and community organizations, Community Empowerment Network (CEN) for the purpose of organizing and building capacity to provide health services to underserved residents of the state. CEN’s mission is to promote social (networking), economic, health, education, and community development through the partnerships within target counties across the state of Georgia.
Training Men To Succeed
The ECRA began in April 2004 with the mission of training men to be responsible, productive, and law-abiding citizens. Through a focused 6-8-week training course, we equip men from all walks of life with the mental tools to make better decisions, eliminate erroneous belief systems and establish a “Web of Support” for sustained success. The web of support concept employs methodologies such as lectures, relationship development, small group discussions and one-on-one interaction to create positive change in the lives of men. ECRA has proven effective in helping graduates achieve improved health & employment, positive behavior changes, reduced substance abuse, more community involvement, and healthier happier families. With this model, ECRA will bring positive change to men’s lives locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally.
