Encouraging The Pursuit of Optimal Health

Ensuring everyone has access to quality healthcare and educating the community in our effort to decrease health disparities.

Adreane Grant, Program Director


Health and Wellness Program

The Brookland Foundation's Health and Wellness Program provides services and outreach to the uninsured/underinsured while promoting healthy lifestyles and well-being within disadvantaged populations. Our health and wellness initiatives provide access to resources and support needed to help people lead healthier lives. Our Health and Wellness Program engages the community and provides awareness to promote healthy behaviors, improve health outcomes, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. The program also fosters a sense of community and social support for those experiencing health challenges.

Annual Community Health Fair

The Community Health Fair provides free health screenings annually for nearly 500 to 600 people. Available screenings include Breast Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Prostate Cancer, Hypertension/Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Sickle Cell Anemia, and Diabetes.


Color Pink Project/Color Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Gala

Each October, Our Health and Wellness Program hosts The Color Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Gala to amplify breast cancer awareness, promote early detection, and celebrate survivorship. Funds raised during the event help to provide vouchers for breast cancer screenings for the uninsured and under-insured and support the operations of the Survivor's Circle Breast Cancer Support Group.

Survivor's Circle Breast Cancer Support Group

Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be a traumatic experience that can leave individuals feeling isolated and overwhelmed. The Survivor's Circle helps individuals cope with the emotional and physical challenges that come with cancer. Group members gather the first Thursday of every month by Zoom or in person to share vital information and provide support.

Project Breathe Easy

Project Breathe Easy engages youth and teens between the ages of 12 and 19 in a research-based anti-vaping and smoking prevention program designed to help young people avoid the dangers of e-cigarettes, tobacco, and nicotine use. In addition, the project provides free smoking cessation services, nicotine replacement therapy, and free lung cancer screenings for minority populations.

Project Get Active

Project Get Active promotes healthy lifestyle changes and active living in middle-aged adults and encourages weight management, proper nutrition, and stress management.

Project Young Athlete

Project Young Athlete provides free sports physicals to middle and high school students participating in school or community-based athletic programs. The project allows youth from disadvantaged communities to participate in activities that promote healthy, active lifestyles while teaching soft skills like conflict resolution, teamwork, and overcoming adversity.

Red Dress/Red Tie Campaign

Our Health and Wellness program sponsors the Red Dress/Red Tie Campaign each year to raise heart health awareness. The project educates community members on the risk factors for heart disease. It guides how people can lead healthier lives and reduce their risk for heart attacks and cardiovascular disease.


Health Career Scholarships

The Health and Wellness Program partners with the Columbia Christian Health Care Auxiliary (CCHA) to provide at least two $1,000 scholarships annually for high school students who plan to pursue a career in the medical/science field.
