Urban Triage and Youth-Centered Hip Hop Educational Workgroup Coming!

Congratulations to Urban Triage (UT) and all of the recipients of COVID-19 Response Grants from the Wisconsin Partnership Program!

UT promote healing, resilience, self-esteem and connection. Partners in the Collaborative Center for Health Equity and the School of Education worked with Brandi Grayson, UT CEO/Founder to submit a successful application in support of Black youth with an expansion of their transformative educational Workgroup!  The award will also support the introduction of access to telehealth resources.

Great appreciation to our own Sarah Esmond, and Drs. Annalee Good and Tenah Hunt for establishing the first Urban Triage/UW health equity partnership!  Sarah notes:

It’s so rewarding to see Urban Triage Inc. be recognized again for their Workgroup model.  I’d heard about the impact of Brandi’s approach from so many who have participated in the Supporting Healthy Black Families and the Co Conspirator Workgroups.  I’m proud to be sponsored by UW to participate in the 3rd Cohort of Co Conspirators right now. This work prepares us to recognize trauma stemming from white supremacy racism and to heal individually and collectively. Congratulations to Brandi and her team for a well-deserved award in support of Black youth!
