OUR PURPOSE

 

NEO Black Health Coalition’s vision is to achieve health parity (equality) in the African American/Black population

 

NEOBHC is a social justice organization created to address disparities and inequities in education, employment housing, health and the impact on African American health disparities by working to empower, educate and advocate for health equity in under-served populations.

 

Our Brand: The meaning of the Brown Rose logo - brown rose conveys a feeling of warmth and stability. Despite of all of the atrocities that African Americans have faced we are still able to warmly embrace our ancestry and remain strong in our unrelenting faith.
