HEALTH Committee Chair

The Health Committee seeks to eliminate racial and ethnic inequities that exist within our health care system that undermine communities of color, their life opportunities and their ability to contribute fully to the common good.  This mission includes a focus on the right of African Americans, people of color and other marginalized groups to have optimal health outcomes and access to timely, quality, affordable health care.

African Americans continue to have the highest incidence, prevalence and mortality rates from chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, and issues like HIV/AIDS continue to overwhelm the Black community more so than any other racial or ethnic group.  We strive to bring awareness, education and quality information to our communities.  The Health Committee provides a number of events, education, workshops and training to inform the public so they can make well informed decisions about their own and family healthcare needs.
