Gala Celebrates Decade of Health and Hip Hop

Hip Hop Public Health hosted its first “Health in Key Gala” to celebrate a decade of youth empowerment through music. The gala honored several celebrities who have worked with the program, which uses hip hop music and other multimedia elements to improve the health literacy of inner city children. The “Health in Key Gala” was also a fundraiser to raise money for the organization’s school-based programs. These programs have taught more than 50,000 students in public elementary schools across the U.S. as well as students in eight countries how to lead healthier lifestyles.

Reporter Melissa Noel was at the Edison Ballroom in Times Square for all the festivities, in the video above filmed by Kizzy Cox.
