It’s ALL About Health.
People tend to think about mental health differently, and sometimes are
ashamed to seek help for mental health or disclose mental health challenges in ways we don’t worry about for a physical ailment such as heart disease or diabetes. People who are empathetic about a cancer diagnosis may draw a blank when you share that you have
sickle cell or lupus. Physical ailments can affect our mood and mental well-being. We need a holistic attitude to HEALTH as a whole body and mind phenomenon so we can effectively support the well-being of African-American families.
Topics for The Black Health Matters Summit include:
- Breast cancer
- Clinical Trials
- Heart Disease
- Hereditary ATTR amyloidosis
- Mental Health
- Prostate Cancer
- Sexual Health
