Optimizing Black and Latino Health
Despite millions of dollars invested in the research conditions of African American and Latino Health, only a small percentage is used to sustain community programs that actually improve health. The few programs in existence focus on access to health services ( ie clinics ) minimizing the importance of primary prevention, community, spirituality and community on health .
The health and wellness of African Americans and Latinos exist beyond the individual or physical health, It involves mental, spiritual, family and community wellbeing as well.Patients spend about 20 minutes in a doctor’s office but spend the remainder of their time at home, at their jobs and within the community.
Welcome to Health Empowerment for African Americans and Latinos.
