The Black Health Matters Summit South

Fighting injustice in health care is an urgent civil rights issue central to achieving a shared dream of peace, prosperity, and equality. In the inspiring words of Maya Angelou, “When you know better, you do better”. Black Health Matters would like to thank the presenters and attendees of the Black Health Matters South Summit. We can together for a day of information, networking and enlightenment. We were thrilled with the feedback to the Summit through social media and personal notes to our organization.

Mark your calendar for February 17th, 2019 as we host our third Summit at The Riverside Church in New York City.
