NEW YORK, — BLACK ENTERPRISE will present its first-ever Health & Wellness Summit, March 25 sponsored by Manulife and John Hancock. Never have the realities of racial healthcare disparities been more apparent. This urgently needed summit will address the physical and mental health needs of Black communities, from managing stress, obesity, and chronic conditions to physical fitness and self-care.

The Health & Wellness Virtual Summit will feature candid, engaging conversations with leading experts on health, fitness, nutrition, and mental and emotional wellness for African Americans, as well as discussions on actionable solutions to systemic inequities in healthcare that make Black people vulnerable to chronic illness and threaten the quality of life in Black communities. The one-day event will delve deeply into critical health issues facing African Americans, ranging from diabetes and heart disease to the effects of chronic anxiety and stress.

Attendees of the Black Enterprise Health & Wellness Summit will gain insights on:

  • A holistic approach to wellness: achieving physical, mental, and emotional health
  • Addressing racial health disparities, including resources and strategies
  • Coping during COVID: the effects of anxiety, stress, and isolation, and ways to minimize trauma
  • Resources, strategies, and expert advice on combating chronic disease in the Black community

The Black Enterprise Health & Wellness Summit takes place from 12:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST on Thursday, March 25, 2021. For a complimentary registration and more information about sessions and speakers, visit https://health.blackenterprise.com.
