The Men’s Health Project of Portland has unveiled a new health information website for the community.
OurHealthAlliance.org provides accurate, up-to-date articles on health issues that are particularly relevant to African-Americans and Africans in an easy-to-use format.
Funded by a grant from the State of Oregon’s Office of Multicultural Health and Services, the website includes articles of interest to all community members, not just men.
The information comes mostly from the National Institutes of Health’s extensive “Medline Plus” consumer health site and includes articles on diabetes, stroke, heart disease, nutrition and many other topics. It also has links to national and local health organizations and a directory of local low-cost and no-cost health clinics and Women, Infant and Children (WIC) offices.
