Our Health Initiative Programs involve increasing the presence of health professionals in the community in order to raise awareness of women's health and wellness through means such as live interviews, lectures, and educational programs. Through these means, the issue of health and health awareness will be highlighted and brought to the attention of diverse audiences.
Through H.E.R. we want to BEAT the stigmas associated with women's health.
Building: The capacity of minority women to address their own health needs while building an initiative and sustain needed lifestyle changes.
Education: Increasing awareness and understanding of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes prevention treatment and control.
Accountability: The success in every aspect of the program including monitoring both individual and partner adherence to program objectives.
Together: Collaboratively working to problem solve, with strong participant input in program design and execution.
We give information on how to reduce risk factors associated with health conditions due to poor diet and physical inactivity and sedentary lifestyle.
Components of classes and workshops include:
CPR and First Aid
Team Fitness Challenge
Health and Wellness Training
Healthy Eating Resources
This event is sponsored by Culture Blocks, a community partnership between ASC, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library and Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to bring arts and cultural experiences closer to where residents live. Culture Blocks is funded by Mecklenburg County.
ArtoberFest is our way to give back to the community and give our children life-changing opportunities through art. Artober Fest strives to inspire area residents and surrounding communities alike to join in celebrating the West Side of Charlotte's rich cultural heritage and service area resources. Artober Fest includes activities such as live music, selfie park, live art, kid’s activities/fashion show, food trucks, games, artist kickback and so much more!
This project is made possible, in part, with funding from ASC, and the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
This event is our way of culminating Charlotte’s live art, food and beverage, and multicultural creative scenes into an outdoor extravaganza. Artists from Charlotte and surrounding counties will gather with locals to safely take to the outdoors and celebrate the life of Charlotte through the arts. Electrifying performances and mural paintings, are apart of the many activities for the festival.
