Organizer of Black Health: San Francisco

WISE Health is a San Francisco based organization that develops innovative programs to improve the health and wellness of vulnerable populations, including low-income individuals, older adults, and racial/ethnic minorities. Over the last year, through successful partnerships and contracts, we have conducted and coordinated over 400 health education workshops and activities throughout the city specifically designed to promote healthy behaviors (e.g., physical activity, nutrition, sexual health) to reduce health disparities; increase social support and reduce social isolation; and recruit and educate caregivers. Our primary programs and services focus on senior citizens residing throughout District 10 (i.e., Bayview Hunters Point and Sunnydale).
