HBCU BALR's do you want $7000?

Hey BALR's,

Our friends over at ETR wanted us to share this information with you.

"Black representation and voices in public health are essential in advancing health outcomes for African-Americans. Historical trauma and misinformation around healthcare has hindered many African-Americans from seeking and understanding important information regarding sexual health and resources.

The Black Public Health Influencer Design Fellowship (B-PHI) provides an opportunity for Black-led voices to educate and advocate sexual health information to the public, utilizing social media as a tool to disseminate information to a wide audience."

- AJ King, ETR Program Coordinator
