One event on February 28, 2018 at 1:30pm
Blacks United in Recovery (BUR) is holding regular meetings for Blacks in Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan.
Consider joining our Advisory Council to help decision-makers better understand what people need and want to improve their mental health and improve access to healthcare services that work. Participants attending a meeting once each month will receive a $20 VISA gift card.
IF you are Black in Dorchester, Roxbury or Mattapan and concerned about healthcare and policy (as a community leader, a person with lived experience of recovery from mental health issues, trauma or addiction or a friend or family member of someone with lived experience) YOU are invited to join healthcare researchers and policy makers to affect change in healthcare practices and public policy for both providers and people served.
The Advisory Council is funded by a grant from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute. For a description of the project go to PCORI link. The grant helps The Transformation Center support Blacks to consider their needs and explore research questions that could make a difference to their local communities.
