Who we are
We have a holistic approach to our work because our health and wellbeing intersect with where we live, work, and play. Living well is not just about being in good health, eating well, and being physically fit. It is also about feeling safe, having access to proper health care, living in a just society, and having the ability to improve your situation.
Black Women’s Health Coalition
The Black Women’s Health Coalition is a FREE program that addresses the health disparities of Black women. We approach this holistically: physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, and with a justice lens. Join us on the 3rd Saturday of the month at Corinthian Baptist Church, 814 School Street, from noon to 3:00 pm. Free childcare is available.
Upcoming Dates and Topics include:
March 18th – Diabetes and Kidney Health
