UAC selected to receive community grant from University of Pittsburgh

The Union of African Communities of Southwestern Pennsylvania was one of several community organizations selected as winners of the 2015 wordout: Community Research Dissemination Challenge, sponsored by the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Pittsburgh. UAC submitted a video about the need for stress prevention techniques to be disseminated throughout the African immigrant community.


The video was chosen from many submissions, and UAC was awarded a $5000 grant to create and facilitate workshops to share information relevant to dealing with stress. The grant shows UAC’s commitment to improving the lives, health, and well-being of African immigrants across the region.
