Community

Wellness

Consider these numbers from the American Heart Association and the US Department of Human Health:

  • 13.2% of all African Americans aged 20 years or older have diagnosed diabetes.

  • African Americans are 1.7 times more likely to have diabetes as non Hispanic whites.

  • The prevalence of high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) in African-Americans in the United States is among the highest in the world. 

  • More than 40 percent of non-Hispanic African-American men and women have high blood pressure.

These numbers alone are a resounding alarm that we need to be very deliberate and strategic in creating wellness programs in our community that will attack these and other diseases that plague the African American's.

 

As a result, Community Wellness programs need to exist in the home, in Schools, Community Centers, YMCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs, and etc.  Click below to learn more about community wellness and our partnership with ID Life.

Why Not Community Wellness? 

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The Global Obesity Epidemic proves that persevering with the same model for our health care system to live a healthy lifestyle is not an option. This talk will explore the synergies that could create a healthy sustainable future.
