Why Health

HNMA's “Why Health” program is a two-prong approach to alleviating two of the social determinants of poor health; lack of knowledge/information and poor living environment. HNMA uses Community Health Workers, resident of the community in which they live, to deliver education, outreach, and advocacy services.

HNMA'S "Friends of the Jersey Creek Walking Club was started in partnership with Latino Health for All and Healthy Communities Wyandotte.

The "Friends of Jersey Creek" Walking Club was started in 2015 to engage residents of the community located by the trail in usage of the current trail amenities and to canvass those neighborhoods for desired trail improvements. Those interested in walking meet regularly at 10 am at the Heathwood Park Baseball Diamond on Saturday mornings. Walking journals and pedometers are provided.
