Our community faces specific health challenges that are too often underserved by traditional models of prevention and treatment. Our aim is to eliminate barriers to access for our neighbors, bringing resources directly into the community, building relationships, and sharing knowledge in accessible formats.
For years, BCM has hosted the Soul Fit Workout program to bring joyful fitness opportunities into Homewood. Working with seniors in other programs, we identified medical and non-medical gaps that exist in their wellbeing, and launched Senior Care Coordination to address them. When COVID-19 struck, we began our work in health literacy education and community vaccinations to make sure our people were taken care of.
