April 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT
Unpack health disparities, access, and stigma in Black communities, and get connected to IMAN’s work around community health.
We are honored to be joined by the world renowned rapper and community activist, Freeway, alongside Dr. Angela Odoms-Young, Associate professor of Kinesiology and Nutrition at UIC. After a year of witnessing how public health issues have ravaged vulnerable communities on several fronts, and as we trudge through this month of physical fasting and spiritual cleansing, we will unpack health disparities, access, and stigma in our communities in connection to IMAN’s ‘Reclaiming Our Health’ campaign.
