Prevention is the health care of the future

save buttonAll things are not equal when it comes to health. Across the country, minorities have higher risks for a host of diseases. Nowhere is this truer than in Birmingham, where obesity, fueled by poor diet and inactivity, has led to high rates of stroke, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases.

At UAB HealthSmart, we work to reverse these poor health trends by offering free preventive health services to the people of Birmingham. Backed by health disparities research, UAB HealthSmart’s health education and wellness programs are helping prevent chronic diseases within the Birmingham community.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help. UAB HealthSmart is funded through community partnerships and donor support. We rely on the generosity of people just like you to provide these much-needed services to our clients at no cost to them.  

Won’t you give the gift of good health to someone who desperately needs it? Please make a tax-deductible gift today. Your support will help us pave the road to better health for all.
