This seminar was arranged for all the CDC federal employees to attend locally as well as those who could view the satellite envision hook-up at the Morgantown, West Virginia - CDC campus. The participants at the CDC location were enthusiastic, motivated and engaged in practically all of the issues that I lectured upon during the presentation.
The major objectives of my African American Health seminar were:
- Describe African American health care issues, including its unique and important cultural health patterns;
- Apply principles derived from ethnic health and health disparity planning, implementation and evaluation; and
- Critique and evaluate the Affordable Care Act and its potential impact on African American health status.
