To realize health as a shared value and to foster cross-sector collaboration and community well-being, AAHP has forged strong relationships with faith communities, universities, private organizations, and agencies to create a sustainable network and to expand the reach and scope of services. These partnerships are critical in optimizing AAHP’s community outreach and health promotion services.
Among its fruitful partnerships, AAHP now counts the American Diabetes Association; the American Heart Association; the American Cancer Society; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; and the National Medical Association—all have provided tools and resources to add to AAHP’s arsenal. Highly active Greek organizations such as Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity (Montgomery County Alumni Chapter), Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated (Montgomery County Alumnae Chapter), Omega Psi Phi Fraternity (Montgomery County Alumnae Chapter), and Alpha Kappa Alpha (Theta Omega Omega Chapter) have helped publicize and volunteer at AAHP events. AAHP also partnered (partners)with numerous clinics and health centers in Montgomery County such as Primary and Alternative Medical Care, Inc., Community Clinic, Inc., Muslim Community Center, and Metropolitan Cardiovascular Consultants, LLC, and more.
The African American Health Program is funded and administered by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and implemented by McFarland & Associates, Inc.
