The Health Committee is one of the long standing committees of the NAACP. The goal of this committee is to promote, protect and maintain the health of African Americans in the Springfield community.
As such we promote health screenings, health fairs, and other activities in pursuit of this goal. Additionally our Branch is dedicated to insuring that African Americans have access to quality health care.
