    JOIN THE MOVEMENT

    BATTLE FOR OUR BABIES was developed utilizing academic “bench” science and community residents’ “trench” knowledge. It is grounded in a philosophy of community-based participatory public health as social justice, and based on the understanding that cultural beliefs and practices can be both protective and harmful. 


    OurHealthyCommunity.com (OHC) is a culturally-appropriate collaborative space, and training site for the leadership of underserved, faith and community-based organizations (Community Partners). We then leverage the OHC platform to connect our Community Partners with qualified healthcare Payer, Provider, Government and Academic stakeholders..
