SHEA (Sharing Health Education and Awareness) is a targeted, community-centered approach focused on reducing health disparities and rates of chronic disease among Black women in Jackson, Hancock, and Harrison counties.
Our Focus Areas
We are focused on increasing access to healthcare and sharing information about healthy behaviors among Black women in four key areas.
Voices of Hope
We are proud to announce the second installment of our “Voices of Hope” campaign that is focused on increasing COVID-19 vaccination rates among Black families within our Gulf Coast communities. Listen to the heartfelt reasons two Gulf Coast families chose to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
Our bodies are a source of life and nourishment for our children and our communities, so taking control of our health means taking control of our future. Your story about breastfeeding, quitting tobacco, or becoming more active can help other Black women make healthy choices for themselves and those they care about.
