Center for African American Health


We empower the Black community to make informed health decisions that benefit the whole person through education, collaboration, and advocacy.


Partnering to create the opportunities for African American individuals and families to live in healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities.


The rich legacy of the Black church in the African American experience inspires our work. We believe that the church continues to be the heartbeat within the African American community for citizen engagement, leadership development, and enabling self-sufficiency.
