Swishahouse Wins Award from Univesity of Houston for Promoting HIV/STD Prevention

(AllHipHop News) Legendary Houston, Texas record label, Swishahouse, has been honored by University of Houston with the 2011 Most Outstanding Educational Program Award.

In association with the CCM Foundation, Swishahouse was given the award at the 27th Annual Campus Leaders Reception at the University of Houston.

Working in partnership with the Collegiate Cancer Council, Swishahouse earned the kudos by creating the yearly "Well Woman Extravaganza."

Since 2009, the event has provided HIV/STD testing, HPV/cervical cancer immunizations and education, breast cancer education and screening services, and other health screenings to over 600 people to date.

“We are thrilled and honored to win this prestigious award,” said Michael ‘5000’ Watts, “and we look forward to continuing to sponsor community events that impact the lives of so many women on the University of Houston campus.”

The "Well Woman Extravaganza" is held in the Fall semester and is free for college students, as well as the general public.
