Premier Health, the largest comprehensive healthcare system in southwest Ohio, recently donated $10,000 in proceeds from the 23rd annual African American Wellness Walk (AAWW) to Central State University.

The annual event was held on Aug. 12 in Dayton. It is a community-driven event aimed at raising awareness about health disparities for African Americans. The walk strives to address risk factors and complications associated with chronic diseases, promoting positive lifestyle changes and physical activity.

The goal is clear: Empower individuals to take charge of their health and well-being.

The African American Wellness Walk is a testament to our collective commitment to fostering healthier communities.

Last year's walk was a tremendous success. Premier Health presented each of Ohio's two Historically Black Colleges and Universities — Central State and neighboring Wilberforce University — with checks during a ceremony in February. 

To everyone who participated, donated, and supported the walk, we extend our heartfelt gratitude. Your contributions have a direct and positive impact on the well-being of our communities.

Let's continue this journey toward better health and shared prosperity. Central State University is proud to be part of initiatives like the African American Wellness Walk, fostering positive change one step at a time!
