In recognition of National Minority Health Awareness Month, Community Hero Action Group is pleased to host its 1st annual Pennsylvania Black Health Matters Conference – a free, virtual, public event in which the community can safely engage and learn from health industry experts from the comfort of their homes. The Conference takes place on Thursday, April 8th, 2021 from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm EDT. The full agenda and registration can be found at BlackHealthMattersPA.org.
The Conference offers a wide range of topics such as accessing underutilized caregiver resources, organ donation myths, diet and disease, and the examination of the media’s impact on the perception of Black beauty.
“Health care disparities in the Black community are due to poverty, lack of information, and implicit bias. The goal of our conference is to educate and also provide actionable takeaways and strategies that attendees can execute immediately after attending to close these inequality gaps,” states Community Hero Executive Director, Nicole McGruder.
