Our goals are to promote healthy behaviors across many life stages. We aim to empower young adults to become leaders in their communities and equipping them with the tools necessary to disseminate proven techniques to combat and prevent health disparities. Through mentorship, Healthy Ambassadors will be informed on health career opportunities and practice public speaking and presentation skills.
