"I encounter disparities in health care every day in my medical practice and community outreach efforts, especially with my young patients and students," says Dr. Whitfield.

Seven heroes make up the core members of the Legion of Health:

2. Six Pack Represents Exercise/Fitness

3. Suga Free Represents Nutrition

4. Eve Represents Spiritual Health

5. Yao Li Represents Alternative Medicine

6. Braniac Represents Research

7. Balance Represents Mental Health

The members of the Dungeon of Disease are led by the notorious Bad Heart, a sickly but shrewd and manipulative villain who will stop at nothing to destroy his foes, the Legion of Health.
