Grand Rapids African American Health Institute holds 'Health Education and Equity' series
The Grand Rapids African American Health Institute (GRAAHI) is partnering with Spectrum Health to bring a Health Equity and Education series. Thursday will mark their latest virtual event: COVID: A Call to Conscience Addressing Racism as a Heart Disease.
Ashley Rene Lee of the Grand Rapids Community Foundation will host the event and conversations will feature West Michigan's Dr. Khan Nedd and Dr. Peter Knoester, as they discuss impacts of racism on heart disease, COVID-19 treatment and other health issues.
Community members can watch the event for free on the GRAAHI's Facebook livestream at 4pm and will be able to ask questions.
GRAAHI's mission is to promote health care parity in the Grand Rapids African American community through advocacy, education and research to achieve positive health outcomes.
