Welcome to the Kick it with Kiira Season 2 Episode 2!! As most of you might know, It is my favorite month. YES, I LOVE FEBRUARY. It was just Valentine's day yesterday and, most importantly, It is black history month.
For those of you who do not know, the theme for this year is black health and wellness. So, today we will be discussing all things black women’s health, and to do justice to this topic we are joined by a phenomenal physician Dr. Renaisa Anthony!
Dr. Anthony discusses the impact of cultural influences on our health habits.
Poor health bears a hefty price and impacts us all. It leads to higher health care and insurance costs and lower productivity. Economic and academic achievement gaps also contribute to the cycle of poor health, ultimately undermining community stability and growth. Do we have the will to make health a priority for everyone in our neighborhoods, towns, cities and state? On Day One, we’ll uncover barriers to better health and carve a path to prosperity that is entirely in our grasp.
Given By Renaisa S. Anthony, MD, MPH Achieving health equity is an ongoing objective in today’s world. Healthy People 2020 has identified a complex arrangement of factors known as the social determinants of health that largely influence the health of an individual or population. These determinants of health can be inherited or exposed, they encompass economic, social, and political factors, and they are directly impacted by the context, care, and culture constructed in the healthcare setting. In her talk, Dr. Anthony will take us on a journey to explore the root causes of health disparities including the social determinant of health. She will provide a perspective on health equity and how each member of society can play an integral role to accomplish the Healthy People 2020 overarching goal, "to eliminate health disparities, achieve health equity and improve the health of all groups."Give customers a reason to do business with you.
Dr. Anthony discusses the impact of race, gender, and background on her life and the lives of the people she serves.
