Groundbreaking Town Hall Meeting to Explore Why Race, Income and Geography Can Predict Health
Date:3/27/2008

Social determinants of health discussed by international experts

WASHINGTON, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A town hall meeting in the nation's capital will, for the first time, bring together leading heart disease and stroke prevention experts from around the world to examine how race, income, education and geography can predict how healthy we are in the United States.

The mission of the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) obligates us to be a catalyst for stimulating this kind of action -- in order to improve the health of all Americans and to ensure that African American children know their grandparents. The National Forum Town Hall Meeting and Leaders Luncheon are an opportunity to further encourage collaborations that keep elimination
