About the Program

Temple Health: Block-by-Block (THB3) is supported through the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
Temple University is committed to urban health. This research program will give Temple University information on the needs, wants and concerns of the community. That information will be used to help create new programs to:

  • Contribute to the health improvement of the North Philadelphia community
  • Enrich research participation
  • Broaden the research portfolio of Temple University

The long-term goal of this partnership will be to establish a sustainable, multigenerational cohort of North Philadelphia households. Participants will be engaged in the concept of individual and community health improvements across the lifecycle.
