Get in the ring, Champion! The tobacco industry has used African Americans to make millions for centuries, but it’s time to fight back.  Tobacco regulation starts with talking to your local legislature about needed policies and changes. Visit NoMentholSunday.org to learn how to start that dialogue.

The AAWP is proud to play a role in helping launch the Digital Health for Equitable Health (#DHEH) Alliance. This is a milestone for the future of #healthcare for underserved communities to help create a more accessible and inclusive #digitalhealth society.

This week on the Black Doctors Speak Podcast, we are joined by Dr. George Woods who will discuss mental health in the African American Community.
 
Dr. Woods is a psychiatrist who feels that the mental health delivery system is not sensitive, and often prejudiced, against African Americans. In addition, many African Americans are distrustful of mental health services.
Regardless of the rationale for poor outcomes, especially during these difficult times, we have to do a better job both changing the mental health system to appreciate cultural differences and to increase awareness of the value of mental health services in the African American community.

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.
