Arthur Ashe Institute CEO Ruth Browne explains the mission of the organization founded by the late tennis star Arthur Ashe and how it is accomplishing its goals to improve urban residents’ health. MetroFocus airs on WLIW on Oct. 23 at 11 p.m., on THIRTEEN on Oct. 25 at 8:30 p.m. and on NJTV on Oct. 25 at 10 p.m.

Ruth Browne is the CEO of the Arthur Ashe Institute, and the architect of many programs that bring preventive health measures to underserved communities in New York and elsewhere.  In this extended interview with MetroFocus host Rafael Pi Roman, Browne explains how she came up with the idea for raising the health consciousness of inner-city residents through their personal ties to beauty salons and barbershops, and how the program has grown since it began in 1995.
