Community Health Empowerment

We define Community Health Empowerment as connecting people to the information, tools and resources they need to make informed health decisions, so that they can safeguard and improve the health of their families and neighborhoods by promoting wellness within their communities.

Our health messages, based on current research, are tailored so that participants can act on them immediately and convey experience and outcomes to others, building a momentum of positive "social contagion" recently noted to be effective in decreasing both obesity and smoking.

We offer training that meets people where they are, both literally and figuratively. Our health interventions take place in trusted settings such as barbershops, salons, public housing and faith-based settings. Curricula are designed to increase knowledge, influence attitudes and build skill in both advocacy and behavior change, resulting in more informed decision-making, timelier screenings, fuller compliance with appropriate care protocols, and higher levels of wellness through prevention.
