Cancer, heart diseases and other chronic illnesses are claiming the lives of our residents at alarming rates. Too many people are dying before their time. Young people are suffering at alarming rates of obesity which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. The vast majority of the illnesses affecting members of our community are preventable.

The Hooked On Health Community Coalition is a coalition of Philadelphia community based organizations, faith based organizations and community activist serving the residents of Southwest Philly. The mission of the coalition is to increase public awareness of the importance of one’s health. The coalition encourages individuals and families to be proactive in terms of health education and personal health management.

Primary Goals:
• Increase participants awareness of the importance of health education
• Increase participants awareness of the importance of being proactive in one’s personal health management
• Increase participants awareness of the resources and services available to them that contribute to better health outcomes
