The African American Health Coalition, Inc was developed to implement initiatives that would reduce health disparities among African Americans and promote increased communication and trust between the African American community and local institutions and organizations... The once-volunteer organization based in Portland is now a professional, community-based, multimillion-dollar nonprofit organization moving full force to make Portland's African American community the healthiest in the nation... What we're really doing most effectively, I think, is listening to the community and letting them tell us what they're willing to do... You know, you can have the best program, the best designed program in the world, but if the community doesn't buy into it, or if they're not connected to it, it won't be effective... And not just for me but for the elder women and men... And I just applauded him... More women are going for early detection breast cancer screening, thanks to our breast and cervical cancer program... Any time you have one race continuing to have poorer health outcomes than the dominant population, it is everybody's responsibility to be concerned, because it drives health care costs... And prevention is the key, and it's a way for everyone to benefit... For more information about this video, Corliss McKeever, MSW, African American Health Coalition, Inc... Telephone: 503-413-1850...
