In the “Black Women & Matters of Our Health: A Conversation With Our Sister Doctors” live virtual streaming event, there is an expert group of medical professionals, Black female physicians, that will address the issues of disparities in healthcare for Black women. The discussion will focus on those health issues plaguing Black women, i.e., breast cancer, cervical cancer, diabetes, heart disease, mental health. In addition, they will discuss Family Health and how the coronavirus is disproportionately affecting Black families…and the need for the COVID-19 vaccine.
