Central Miss. Health Services, in partnership with the Community Health Center Association, has selected 10 student ambassadors to participate in the REPAAIR/UPLIFT Health Equity Initiative. Six ambassadors are students at Jackson State University and 4 are students at Tougaloo College; both are HBCUs in Jackson, Miss.
They will engage in training and service-learning activities starting today to help them understand the historical and contemporary factors that have contributed to disparate health outcomes among Black Mississippians and communities of color. Focus topics will be reducing food insecurity and improving health literacy.
REPAAIR Ambassadors are required to participate in five educational Zoom meetings, participate in mentoring sessions, complete community engagement activities, and complete a service project.
