We connect underserved communities with the knowledge, services, and resources they need to live healthier lives.

 

Featured Programs

The Naveguemos con Salud (NCS) Breast Health Partnership Project and its sister program Navigating, Educating, and Supporting Together (NEST) are coordinated education and patient navigation programs designed to improve breast health outcomes among Philadelphia’s Latina population. These programs aim to increase capacity at the individual and community levels to overcome social determinants of health by increasing knowledge and awareness of breast health issues and resources and by decreasing barriers to access within the Latino community.
Eat.Right.Now. (ERN) is a nutrition education and obesity prevention program led by the School District of Philadelphia and funded by the USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed). Through this partnership, Health Promotion Council and other ERN partners provide nutrition education for students in 80% of Philadelphia's public schools.

Our nutrition educators help students identify healthy eating and physical activity options using simple key messages, food sampling, and supportive, interactive activities.
