***Yes, you can and we can help***

Efforts are being made by the Gates County Empowerment Center Health Services to be an advocate for empowering the community on health education.  The focus at this time is “Diabetes Awareness”.  We serve as a link between church members, families and the community.  We support the American Diabetes Association.  Programs like “Project Power” which encourages the churches to fight against diabetes.   As a supplement to “Power Project we have linked up with the Gates County Partners for Health as Community Health Ambassadors.   This team is currently attending classes at the COA to be successful Community Health Ambassadors.  The goal of the Community Ambassador Program is to reduce the number of people who develop chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and HIV/AIDS, and educate on preventative health measures.
