Umu Igbo Unite Cincinnati was founded in June 2017 by 6 young Igbo Professionals and currently has over 30 paid members.
The UIUCincy Chapter offers opportunities for cultural awareness, networking, and intellectual growth. The chapter has a heart for bringing awareness of Sickle Cell Disease to Nigeria and locally in the US. Our Jollof Off and Suya, Paint & Sip events in 2018 has directly went to aiding our goal of helping the Sickle Cell community. To cap things of for this year we will be hosting a Sickle Cell 5k in September during Sickle Cell awareness month!
