This initiative is led by Amy Badham with SCGH support and is consistent with a “Glocal”, (think global, act local) perspective adopted by the Center. Using community-based participatory research best practices SCGH has invested in the development and execution of health education curriculum for BAMA Kids, a non-profit afterschool program in Wilcox County, AL, focused on health issues of rural young men and women of color. Through the inclusion of undergraduate and graduate public health students, this work is serving dual purposes in that it is identifying and meeting the needs of one of the most vulnerable communities in Alabama while offering our public health students experiential learning opportunities in the field.
