About Prince Hall Medical Foundation
In 2010, under the leadership of Most Worshipful Gregory R. Smith Sr, Grand Master of Prince Hall Masons of New York State, The Prince Hall Medical Foundation was established. The Prince Hall Medical Foundation is committed to improving its members’ and constituents’ quality of life and life expectancy through health education, health promotion, and health awareness. The Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness about African American health disparities through health education and prevention activities. His vision was to galvanize the organization, caregivers, and donor organizations to respond to the medical needs in communities across the state through advocacy, health fairs, and partnering to secure health services.
The Prince Hall Medical Foundation health education and awareness strategies include partnering with community-based organizations, academic institutions, health care institutions, and health professionals. The Foundation’s partnerships have produced annual health fairs, health seminars, and blood donation drives.
The Prince Hall Medical Foundation also collaborates and partners with local community-based institutions to identify and distribute health education resources that address the broader community health education and awareness needs.
The Prince Hall Medical Foundation is a not-for-profit organization. All funds donated assist mission delivery and our provision of services.
