What We Do
ADDRESSING HEALTH DISPARITIES
PreSERVE Coalition aims to address and reduce health disparities that impact high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia and other conditions that impact brain health. We believe in the healthy affirmation that celebrating the vitality of Black/African American culture brings to mind, body, and spirit.
ENGAGING BLACK/AFRICAN AMERICANS
We achieve our aims by engaging older Black/African Americans in the Pacific Northwest through learning, socialization, exercise, healthy eating, and the expressive arts.
We invite you to explore this site to learn about how PreSERVE Coalition supports brain health through our rich and meaningful community activities.
INTERESTED IN JOINING PRESERVE?
PreSERVE Coalition meets on the second Wednesday of the month in North Portland.
During these monthly meetings, we plan events and brainstorm ways to serve older Black adults in areas of healthy-aging-education and activities. We also review researcher requests for collaboration.
We always welcome new members.
Join one of our monthly meetings or attend one of our upcoming events.
