African Americans suffer disproportionately from nearly every major disease. African-Americans have the highest mortality rate of any ethnic group for all cancers combined, are twice as likely to be diagnosed with diabetes as whites, 40% more likely to have high blood pressure, 60% more likely to have a stroke, and 30% more likely to die from heart disease. With devastating levels of stress and depression, isolated communities concentrated in food deserts, and an increasingly sedentary America, there is much to tackle. Moving forward together, we CAN begin to heal - one step at a time.
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2
