Prevention Programs

Our Mission

Our objective is to target racial and ethnic minorities in  the Greater Lafayette Area and its surrounding communities. Hanna’s Health Initiative along with Indiana Minority Health Coalition are committed to  supporting programs and services that will reduce racial and ethnic health disparities in Tippecanoe County and improve health outcomes within those groups. Target population are African American, Hispanic/Latino and our two most vulnerable groups, Seniors and children.
