PCDC CEO Louise Cohen has been selected as one of City & State’s 2017 Responsible 100 Honorees, a sought-after annual award bestowed on New York’s most outstanding corporate citizens.
The list also includes PCDC board member Jorge R. Petit, CEO of Coordinated Behavioral Care (CBC), as well as leaders from the NAACP, Scholastic Education, and Bloomberg Philanthropies, among other organizations.
“We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on these 100 winners who all set a clear example for their peers by promoting corporate social responsibility and authenticity in every area of their enterprises,” said City & State President and CEO Tom Allon in an official statement.
Prior to assuming leadership of PCDC in 2015, Cohen was Vice President for Public Health Programs at Public Health Solutions, where she oversaw a variety of programs to improve community health through food access and nutrition, women’s reproductive health, tobacco control, and child development.
Earlier, Cohen held successive leadership positions at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), including as Deputy Commissioner of the Division of Health Care Access and Improvement. Her accomplishments at DOHMH included the development and execution of Take Care New York, New York City’s first comprehensive health policy agenda.
Honorees received their awards at a luncheon at New York University earlier this week.
