A word from the executive director

Dana Williams

Executive Director

For over 30 years, Mrs. Dana Williams has been committed to address health disparities, especially within the Black community. As a co-founder and Executive Director of The Community Wellness Project, Dana tethered herself to Black community leaders and local businesses within the St. Louis, MO to offer free sexual wellness screenings and link newly discovered individuals living with HIV into CARE services. In addition, Dana co-authored many CDC (Centers for Disease Control) interventions for the Black LGBTQIA+ community, which promotes safer sex practices, healthy relationships, and popular opinion leader trainings. Today, CWP offers diabetic services, harm reduction, HIV prevention and CARE services in St. Louis, MO and E. St. Louis, IL. Dana’s vision and multi-faceted approach to address health inequity has saved thousands of lives while providing a sense of home to each community member who visits The CWP office.
