Give Back for #GivingTuesday

Leave a comment

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, the world will be giving on #GivingTuesday. The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center is thrilled to take part in this special season of generosity and giving.

For over 40 years, the Health Center has been dedicated to closing health care gaps present for Asian Americans and other medically underserved communities. We have come a long way since our first health fair on Mott Street in 1971. Today our team of bilingual and bicultural care team works together to help patients achieve their highest level of health.

Our mission and services go beyond clinical care. Our internship programs like Project AHEAD, Health Disparities Research and Training Program and Community Service Learning Program develop high school, undergraduate and graduate students into leaders in health care, social services and education. Our award-winning hepatitis B team advocate for local and national awareness of the disproportionate burden of hepatitis B in immigrant populations. Our certified application counselors help non-English speaking patients sign up for health insurance so they can get the care they or other family members need. Our women’s health program has a bilingual breast cancer support group that provides emotional support and resources on treatment—like beauty techniques to help manage appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.

Has the Health Center impacted your life?
