The James A. Watson Wellness Center is an African-American health care center focusing on disparities in disease within the African-American community.


The Center continues to focus on those who are professionals, working class, those with busy schedules, those who have low income, uninsured (Medi-Cal, indigent), seniors (Medicare population) and those with chronic disease (hypertension, diabetes, cancer, cardiac disease, HIV). Through its provider of medical services (PCN), 501 (c)3 (PCP), volunteerism, and limited grant funding, the facility maintains its commitment to those at greatest need.
