What We Do
The African-American Wellness Project is organized to help you respond to inequities in the health care delivery system.
Originally focusing, on the African-American community, we have found that many consumers need to know how to organize their health care delivery options in a way that allows them to best utilize health care services. The African-American Wellness Project focuses on those tools that you need to get the best quality healthcare regardless of insurance or circumstance.
Founded more than a decade ago, the African American Wellness Project (AAWP) was formed to respond to health disparities in the African American community and is dedicated to health equity and better health outcomes for people of color. AAWP is particularly focused on improving the health of the African American community by serving as a megaphone for trusted knowledge and information and providing guides and resources that enable and encourage African Americans to advocate for themselves and receive improved care, regardless of insurance or circumstances.
The African American Wellness Project provides:
- provides culturally relevant health information
- resources and tools to get the best quality healthcare
- access to African American health experts
Therefore our intent is to focus on the African American Consumer.
The emphasis will include the importance of lifestyle and health, prevention, screening and early detection. In addition, we want African Americans to become more sophisticated as they navigate the health care system. We want African Americans and other consumers to be alert and vigilant when they do not receive quality care. And we intend to create a network of experts to support you as you as we work together to make the health care system more sensitive to the needs of our community.
