HealthWorks

HealthWorks was a program of Triangle Community Works, which provided individuals in the LGBT community an opportunity to socialize while participating in fitness related activities throughout the triangle.

HealthWorks is now the overall Health Initiative of the LGBT Center of Raleigh. A committee has formed under long time volunteer Dr. Paul Coggins, DDS and will be forming programs and services that address our diverse communities' needs in their Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Financial, and Environmental Health.
