HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES-The Links, Incorporated established the Health and Human Services facet in response to the chronic health disparities that persist in black communities and result in the decreased life expectancy of African Americans and other people of African ancestry. The goal of HHS is to promote and facilitate programs that support the maintenance of good health and the elimination of chronic health disparities in communities of color through education, health advocacy, and optimal utilization of health resources. Community education about health risks is crucial and The Links, Incorporated plays a significant role in providing it. Some of our local chapter members are members of the Health Equity Ambassadors Program with the American Cancer Society. Our generous donations to the Community Free Clinic located in Newport News, VA has helped the clinic in assisting over 15,000 patients and giving over 10,000 prescriptions in 2015.
