We are excited to promote some special health offerings aimed at helping our African American members live healthier, happier lives. Sign up for a virtual class below or listen to previous House Calls sessions that focus on African American health (see links at right).
Plants Over Pills
Dr. Kristin Gates and Dr. Leon Williams have been leading our Black Heart Health outreach since 2019 and what we have heard time after time is that our patients want to improve their health without using medications.
In 2022 we started a Plants Over Pills campaign where we are helping patients learn how to take a plant-based approach on taking control of their health.
Health Education On Demand Classes
African American Preconception
There has been a lot in the news and social media about the unique risks African American women face in pregnancy. Ensuring that we, as black women, are healthy BEFORE we get pregnant is the most underutilized weapon we have in protecting ourselves and our children. We are excited to share this on-demand African American Preconception Counseling Class to walk through how to get healthy before pregnancy.
Black Heart Health On Demand Event
This is a recording of our Black Heart Health Event from 10/27/2021 where a panel of African American health educators and doctors covered non-medication ways to lower blood pressure. This event covers diet, exercise, stress reduction, and how to check your blood pressure at home. We took a lot of questions from over 100 African American patients who attended the event live. If you have questions about how you can take control of your heart health, this recording is a great way to start!
