Urban Health Accelerator – HBCU Resource Library

RELENTLESS. It is the essence of the mission of the American Heart Association – to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

And what does this mean?

It means that we won’t stop – we can’t stop – until we achieve Equitable Health – where everyone has a fair opportunity to live a healthier, longer life…And we can’t do it alone – we need to the help of our community partners, like HBCUs. We want to engage with you through social media and to help share our lifesaving messaging through the incredible work you are doing to improve health on campus and in the community. This Library will be regularly updated with monthly social media messaging and graphics, media tools and helpful links to our EmPOWERED To Serve Urban Health Accelerator-HBCU programs and more. Please download the social media toolkit periodically as it is updated with relevant content. Also be on the lookout for information on future Health Accelerators and more.
