Urban Church Wellness




The Urban Church Wellness (UCW) partnership is sponsored by Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s to promote wellness through health education and screening in Milwaukee churches. Milwaukee churches of all denominations are welcome to register as a partner of Urban Church Wellness to collaborate with the membership group and to take advantage of health education, health screening resources and health promotion activities.

Urban Church Wellness will make many healthcare services available, including mammography screening, cooking classes, nutritional education, diabetes education, assistance regarding advance care directives, and development of programs suggested by the health liaison volunteers and the community.
