Dr. Melvyn Rubenfire, a cardiologist at UM, and Ron Lockett, executive director of the Northwest Activity Center, are doubling down on their efforts to get Detroiters get healthier.
The two appeared on CBS 62’s “Michigan Matters” with Senior Producer/Host Carol Cain and discussed Project Healthy Community. It aims to lessen health problems and risks by pro-actively working on living better by changing habits.
Project Healthy Community is a non-profit social enterprise whose mission is to promote the well-being of persons of all ages within communities in need. It was formed in 2013 as a partnership between Temple Israel, Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, the Northwest Activities Center and members of the Northwest Detroit Community.
Then, John Hope Bryant also appears on the show to talk about his mission of helping people learn about finance and money through his organization Operation HOPE.
Hope has eight HOPE centers in the Motor City and talked about his bid to add more.
Watch “Michigan Matters” 11:30 Sunday on CBS 62.
