"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. "I developed the "Legion of Health" to serve as a vehicle that will reinforce positive health values. These messages are presented in a way that is engaging and relatable to the youth market."

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

1. Tha Hip Hop Doc, aka H2D Represents Western Medicine

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. Topics in the series currently include obesity, poor eating habits, physical inactivity, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS & STD's.
