Colgate Bright Futures, Bright Smiles – Dental Health Initiative, March 2018
The Health and Human Services (HHS) facet is a response to the chronic health disparities that persist in our communities and result in the decreased life expectancy of African-Americans. The HHS facet brings greater focus, resources, and coordination to The Links, Incorporated’s health initiative. The goal of HHS is to promote and facilitate programs that support the maintenance of good health and the elimination of chronic health disparities in communities of color through education, health advocacy, and optimal utilization of health resources.
Breast Cancer Awareness
The National Breast Health Initiative educates The Links membership and the communities we serve about the importance of knowing one’s family history and the risk factors for breast cancer. Our goal encompasses advocacy and personal health record retention to ensure proper healthcare maintenance. We strive to provide mentoring, encouragement, and a safe haven for all to share personal journeys.
