Our Mission

Founded more than a decade ago, The African American Wellness Project (AAWP) was organized to respond to inequities in the health care delivery system. African Americans suffer from health conditions at a  disproportionately higher rate and need to know how to organize their health care delivery options in a way that allows them to best utilize
health care services.

At AAWP, we believe that health disparities will continue to exist if we don’t take action. We provide the resources, information and tools, as well as serve as advocate in order to get the best quality health care possible regardless of insurance or circumstance. AAWP is a “good prescription” for Black America.
