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 Health and Human Services 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.
The Health and Human Services Facet of the Hoffman Estates (IL) Chapter is focusing on changing the way youth and their parents think and behave regarding their personal health and safety. We are committed to educating the community in an engaging and fun way on various health topics and safety issues.
