2020 CBHC Health Resources Directory

The CBHC regularly produces, publishes and distributes a Health Resource Directory focused on the Black Community. The community keeps an active interest in this type of resource so CBHC continues to prioritize honoring the community’s wishes.

The directory is multipurpose:

  • To educate the community
  • To provide the community with culturally appropriate health-related information
  • To enhance awareness about appropriate treatment and prevention.

We believe good health and access to quality care are among the most valuable assets we have. The directory contains featured articles, advertisements, and a directory of resources focused on health and well-being. The 2020 CBHC Resource Directory is our most current edition and an important tool for eliminating health disparities and increasing awareness.
