Let us shout as Martin Luther King said so eloquently "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality."- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Get Ready for a Spectacular Community Event!

In collaboration with a variety of partnering agencies we encourage Contra Costa African American residents to come and participate in our upcoming 2014 health expo. Stay tuned in the coming months for more information!

Message from the Chair
The African American Health Empowerment Collaborative (AAHEC) is a community-based organization that formed in October 2011 after the very successful African American Health Empowerment Expo on September 24, 2011. The goal of the AAHEC is to increase community awareness and involvement in the health care of African Americans. The Collaborative is committed to working with residents, community leaders, organizations, and businesses to address the personal, environmental, and economic factors that impact the health of the African American community.
