December 6th-12th is National Influenza Vaccination Week. In 2022-2023, it’s especially important to get a flu vaccine because of the abnormally low exposures to the flu virus many people had during pandemic-related lockdowns and social distancing from 2020-2021. Yet it’s most critical that people of color receive flu vaccines, because statistically, they face far greater health and financial risks if they contract the flu and develop complications from it. Flu complications are more severe for African Americans than other races. Click HERE to read more.

On this week’s Black Doctors Speak, we are joined by Michael LeNoir, MD and Noha Abeoleta, MD, founding CEO of Roots Community Health Center, a community-based, community-driven and community-empowering model for improving wellness that Roots calls “Whole Health” in Oakland, CA. Join us as we discuss COVID-19 Updates, COVID Vaccinations in Children, Pap Smears, Uterine Cancer, Climate Change, Unconscious Bias, and Sleep added to Cardiac Health Outcomes.

Wednesday’s Wisdom is from DB Bedford, AAWP panelist of our Mental Health Initiative. Mr. Bedford recently participated in AAWP’s “Profiled: The Black Man,” that examined the origins of the widespread stereotypes that have permeated society and impacted the lives of Black males in America for centuries.

July is Healthy Vision Month! African Americans have some of the highest rates of vision loss and blindness caused by eye disease — and these rates are getting higher. Many eye diseases have no early warning signs but the good news is that comprehensive dilated eye exams can find many of these eye diseases early, when they’re often easier to treat.
