About the Movement

Healthy Heritage Movement, Inc. was founded in 2007 by Phyllis Y. Clark in Southern California. Created to target and address health disparities within the African American community, Healthy Heritage Movement focuses on the wellbeing of African Americans through health education, policy change, and community outreach.

By doing so, we aim to decrease the prevalence of incidents for six chronic diseases that plague our community:

  • Cancer
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Obesity
  • Mental Health Illness

Often these diseases are preventable, and frequently manageable through early detection, improved diet, exercise, and treatment therapy.

The Healthy Heritage Movement, Inc. invests in and facilitates culturally competent resources, advocacy trainings, and programs that promote prevention, early intervention and education to improve the health of African Americans and offset the economic burden of a chronic disease. The Healthy Heritage is a movement that celebrates the diverse cultural richness of African Americans and delivers the resources to empower the community to live well and thrive.
