Health and Wellness


One might ask "why health and wellness at a cultural center?" Data has shown that as a person loses his or her culture, there is also a decline in health.  Because we want to be connected to the best statistics and health care information, as well as health care assistance available for our community, we maintain collaborations with national and local Place Matters teams, Samueli Institute, the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation and the New Orleans Musicians Clinic, to name a few.  

The Ashé health and wellness programs are coordinated by Jamilah Y. Peters-Muhammad RN BSN FCN, also known as Mama Jamilah.  She is a community health advocate with over 40 years of experience in faith and community health, and is a dancer/percussionist.
