Black Health Matters Summit Live and on Demand

Now you can watch On Demand presentations from the Black Health Matters Fall Summit. The Fall Summit, held October 10, 2020, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., covered more than a dozen health topics, got our bodies moving and peaked our appetite with a healthy cooking class.

Our mission at Black Health Matters is to build a community of health. If you are a patient looking for new information, we are here. If you are a health advocate seeking information about risk factors for various diseases, we are here. If you are a caregiver needing timely health resources about rare diseases, we are here.

The confluence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement has our society focused on racial and ethnic health inequalities. Take this moment to improve your health by listening to the important information shared at the Black Health Matters Fall Summit.
