Juneteenth is a recognition of American history where on June 19, 1865 (only 156 years ago) more than 250,000 enslaved black people were informed they were free. This was an astounding 2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been signed in 1863.

We encourage all those interested in participating in these 19 Days of Wellness to engage in various activities that promote health and wellness (suggested actions…
