Empowered through Health and Wellness, this division recognizes the importance a healthier lifestyle has on an individual's overall well-being. The Health Initiatives Division works to build healthy and safe communities by eliminating health disparities through prevention and education as well as by promoting access to affordable and quality health care for the community. The Springfield Urban League partners with state and local government entities as well as community and faith-based organizations to identify the issues, beliefs, attitudes, and best practices that impact health within underserved communities.
