Four-Day Free Event- Open to the Public
In recognition of National Minority Health Month, we are hosting the third annual Pennsylvania Black Health Matters Conference. This event is free to the community and its goal is to provide actionable, accurate information with a focus on topics that are germane to the Black community. Research shows that Black women have shorter life expectancies, higher maternal mortality rates, and are disproportionately burdened by chronic conditions (1). In response to this health crisis, this year’s conference theme is “Living Her Best Life” to lift up the solutions, actions, and policies that can combat this crisis.
