During what’s supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year”, many of us have lost loved ones due to the Covid-19 & other critical health conditions.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Heart Disease is ranked #1 as the deadliest illness in the United States. Other diseases such as Cancer, COPD, Hypertension, Cerebrovascular aka Strokes, and Alzheimers or Dementia trail behind in numbers. An alarming statistic indicates that African Americans face major health disparities due to economic and social conditions more than our counterparts. One example being African Americans more likely to report they can’t see a doctor because of cost. This is important because many diseases and symptoms can go undetected which may result in earlier deaths and higher death rates in younger African Americans.
