Presenting at Centers For Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) - Atlanta, GA

Last week, I was invited to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia to give a presentation for their African American Health Seminar series. The title of my seminar was, "The State of African American Health and the Potential Impact of the Affordable Care Act."

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:
  1. Describe African American health care issues, including its unique and important cultural health patterns;
  2. Apply principles derived from ethnic health and health disparity planning, implementation and evaluation; and
  3. Critique and evaluate the Affordable Care Act and its potential impact on African American health status.
