Diabetes Wellness Program

The Brownsville Community Culinary Center, located at 69 Belmont Ave., has announced that in addition to their restaurant, culinary training program and community space, they will soon debut a Diabetes Wellness Program, with an aim to serve the neighborhood.

"Health begins in the community," said Rae Gomes, who was recently announced as the BCCC’s new executive director, in a statement. "The goal of the DWP is to create and sustain community-based mechanisms that support Brownsville residents looking to maintain healthy habits during and beyond the program."

The program is set to launch in April 2021. It will provide access to healthy food through a meal program, social services, help and support with medical care and education sessions for both groups and individuals about diabetes.
