Wellness Center

Stacks Image 110
The mission of the Wellness Center is to eliminate the disparity in access to health services that exists between the Latino community and the general population, and provides the Latino community with information and education, on topics such as HIV prevention, cancer awareness, diabetes, nutrition, cardiovascular disease, domestic violence, women’s health issues, substance abuse and many others. All services are FREE of charge and available for men and women.

The Center is located inside of Progreso Latino’s facilities to give the community greater access to the services provided. HIV and cancer screening through Women & Infants Wellness Van is made possible in collaboration with Brown Medical School and Lifespan.
