Welcome to ABIPA

ABIPA improves health conditions for African Americans by providing education, health services and advocacy from a unique understanding of the African American experience and a demonstrated ability to increase collaboration, connection, awareness and trust across diverse segments of the community.


We serve African Americans and all people of color in the following ways:

Locate: From the barber shop to the fellowship hall, we go into communities of color to reach people where they are. Educate: We speak in ways that are culturally relevant and sensitive. We encourage participants to ask questions and get information in an environment of trust. Navigate: We serve as guides and companions to individuals navigating a complex health care system.  Advocate: We empower individuals to take control of their own health.  We strengthen the whole community by bringing people and resources together to meet an urgent need.

ABIPA provides the following Education & Health Services through collaborations with community organizations, groups and individuals in an effort to address and improve health conditions for African Americans:
