Tuesday’s Children Partnership

Adelphi University’s Center for Health Innovation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Tuesday’s Children. This new partnership aims to raise awareness of the various programs and services that are offered by Tuesday’s Children and The First Responder Alliance to serve those in our region who were directly impacted by the events of September 11, 2001. Tuesday’s Children strength is based on community, as connecting those with similar experiences has a profound and positive impact on their collective healing.
