6.11. Friends Health Connection
What began in 1988 as a one-to-one support group for those facing medical issues has grown into a thriving national network of health and wellness services. Friends' Health Connection enhances mind, body and soul through our personalized support network and dynamic educational and motivational programs. We work with hospitals and other nonprofit organizations to complement their program offerings and connect people with resources and support that can enrich their lives.
Friends' Health Connection was founded by Roxanne Black 20 years ago. When Roxanne was diagnosed with systemic lupus at the age of 16 she wanted to find others who could relate to her situation. This need led her to begin Friends' Health Connection.
Friends' Health Connection is proud to be a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
