Establish a Mental Health Helpline for Ghana

Building on our skills

Last month, REACH entered into a collaboration with a group at the Johns Hopkins University on a study to investigate cardiovascular risk among West African immigrants in the Maryland, DC, VA area in the US. Led by doctoral candidate Yvonne Commodore-Mensah at the School of Nursing, this study is important because it contributes to the body of research that elucidates how much of cardiovascular disease is attributed to genetics as opposed to environmental contributors such as diet, exercise and smoking. Faculty and students from the undergraduate college, and the schools of Medicine and Public Health are also involved in this study.

While REACH members in this area are always happy to volunteer their time and effort for a good cause, it also provides a great opportunity for our organization to learn the logistics of running a mobile clinic from the team at Johns Hopkins for translation into our Mobile Clinic in Ghana!

More updates to follow!

As usual, we are super excited and grateful for your interest and support!

Best,

Your friends at REACH~!
