Fitness for our Future.
The Project

The HBCU Wellness Project has trained Student Health Ambassadors, engaged in community residents, collaborated with community based and faith based organizations and institutions, civic departments, and each other —all for one single purpose — to promote change.

Expanding Our Outreach

We are pleased to welcome Knoxville College (Knoxville, Tenn.) back as they continue to reorganize as an academic institution of higher learning.  Knoxville College has a rich and storied history of successfully educating students in our global world.  Many have become teachers, physicians, nurses, scientists, business executives, healthcare professionals, and other industry leaders.

Former Student Health Ambassador

Lane College

“I am currently pursuing my Masters of Public Health degree from South University (Savannah, GA), and after I graduate (in 2021), I’m planning to attain a Doctorate of Public Health. My ultimate goal is to actively be on the frontlines helping to prevent the spread of the HIV/AIDS epidemic by becoming either a lobbyist , healthcare administrator, or infectious disease outreach educator."
