Community Health Fair

The African Center is working with community partners to organize our first Free Community Health Fair. This event presents a good opportunity for BIPOC and immigrant community members to engage in discussions on various health-related issues. It will also be a forum to connect community members with health researchers, service providers, and community organizations dedicated to promoting health equity and addressing barriers to affordable healthcare.

For questions or more information, please call us at (608) 957-5623 or email info@africancentermadison.org.
