All too often, Black people experience more barriers to health based on their race. Many get sick or die because of these barriers. COVID-19 and asthma, for example, are more common among African Americans. How can we all work together to improve the health of Black Americans?

Let’s start the conversation. Join us Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 5:00 p.m. ET for a free online event.
