PROVIDENCE, RI – Below are some of the latest updates and posts found on the Community Datebook Page of UrbanHealthWatch.net. You’ll notice that several of the events come from YWCA Northern Rhode Island, an organization located in Woonsocket, RI, close to the Massachusetts-RI border, and not far from Worcester, MA. Like Urban Health Watch, health events at YWCA NRI are supported, in part, through a Preventive Health and Health Services Block Grant offered through the RI Department of Health (HEALTH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
