Health Promotion and Empowerment Program
Health by developing an awareness of the importance of good health – making it a top priority.
Education on the particulars of health issues that impact the Black Community.
Action speaks to CBHC’s quest to not just talk about things but help move knowledge to action.
Taking it to the streets so that information and activities are shared with the Community.
The following are CBHC’s programs to help bring the H.E.A.T. to YOU – the Community.
CBHC conducts quarterly Forums on various topics. The cornerstones of our Forums and all
that we do involve educating the Community about…
- Fundamental issues impacting health.
- Specific disease states.
- Social determinants that dictate health outcomes.
- Healthy eating and active living.
- Empowering children and families to live healthier lives, in their home environment.
At each Forum, CBHC strives to model healthy behaviors in all of our activities and functions. During 3rd quarter of each year CBHC hosts its annual “Family Reunion” Forum. This Forum stresses physical activity while capturing the elements of age-old family reunions. During the Forums we utilize our proven model of hands-on learning and self-determination, to inform, educate, build awareness, and initiate behavior change in our target audience, as well as the networks they serve. The Forums are designed to demonstrate health and wellness in culturally proficient ways. Additionally, the Forums offer opportunities for health advocates to network and combine their community outreach efforts and projects; to increase interaction between potential partners and targeted audiences; and to disseminate and enhance the reach of the information beyond direct participants.
At the Forums CBHC empowers Community Members to be active participants in managing their health by acquiring knowledge and having confidence to be an advocate for you own health and well-being.
Speaker’s Bureau CBHC has a cadre of experts in various health and social determinant subject matters who are available upon request to share with the Community. Presentations are made at local colleges, churches, civic and other organizations on a variety of topics. The overall goal is to raise public awareness about CBHC, increase visibility, increase public understanding about health disparities and other disease states affecting the Community.

CBHC’s goal is to address the complex needs of the communities we serve through the development and implementation of culturally appropriate programs that are uniquely designed to engage our stakeholders while continuing to expand our network of partners and collaborative relationships.
Tied to this goal is an initiative that started in 2015 entitled, Form a Lifetime of Optimal Wellness (F.L.O.W.). In our quest to be the healthiest Black folks in the Nation, we encourage the entire Community to be a part of this movement and register for the F.L.O.W. Program.
F.L.O.W. (Form a Lifetime of Optimal Wellness) is a comprehensive prevention program that serves as a focal point to inform, educate, assess and refer individuals and families to care for Cardiovascular Disease/Health. F.L.O.W. wraps the Black community in a culture of good health and wellness. CBHC will provide tools and information to empower YOU to make good health choices and to advocate for yourself and your family in the health environment.
