Resource Details


The Mary Amelia Health Education Center seeks to enhance women’s health and well-being through our work in community capacity building; leadership development, health education, advocacy and research. The Mary Amelia Center serves as a comprehensive, community-oriented health education center by providing health education programs that are culturally, geographically, and age appropriate. As a center that values being responsive to the community, we recognize that providing health information is only a small part of fostering healthy individuals and communities. Our ecological approach to health promotion focuses on sharing, building and empowering. Sharing evidence-based health information, expertise and experience. Helping others to share their experiences and learn from each other. Building capacity of individuals to find and use health information. Building capacity of community organizations to identify priorities and develop effective strategies to improve health. Empowering women to be agents of change for themselves and their communities.
