Parish Wellness Centers

 

In our efforts to be active in advocating for social and economic equality, we have created partnerships with local universities so our parishes can be points of access to care in addition to places of worship. These Wellness Centers will be staffed by nursing and social work students to provide needed services to the community.

No appointments are necessary.  No insurance is necessary.  Here is a schedule of wellness centers across the Diocese. For questions about the wellness centers, including creating one within your church, please contact Canon Toneh Smyth, tsmyth@diopa.org.
