IN THE PRESS
Every month in the Urban Voice magazine, the Black Community Health & Wellness Association will have a featured article in the “Community Health & Wellness” section. As collective health professionals based in Southern Nevada, but altogether serving our Silver State community at large these articles will primarily focus on current issues in black and minority health, and involve discussions concerning national policies, laws, regulations, and systemic challenges that affects black communities.
The Black Community Health & Wellness Association helped raise over $600, as an official sponsor of the 5th Annual Las Vegas Sickle Cell Walk , which will go towards Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) educational programming, initiatives, and research for other rare genetic diseases that inadvertently affect African Americans.
