“I join my Bronx family in mourning the untimely passing of Megan Charlop, who had been a friend to this office for many years. This is a devastating loss for not only our health community, but for the entire borough. Her tireless advocacy impacted the health policies of New York City in the areas of lead poisoning, nutrition and physical activity for school age children and most recently, the creation of a school wellness award, just to name a few. I offer my sincerest condolences to her family,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.

Ms. Charlop had played a role in the promotion of a number of events for the Bronx Borough President’s Office, including the annual “Tour De Bronx” boroughwide bicycle tour and “Bike to Work Day.”
