Health Workgroup

The African American Leadership Forum has a holistic vision for our community, where individuals are healthy and our communities sustain a sense of wellbeing. Targeting key health disparities will help bring about individual and community wellness.

We are working to:

  • Increase awareness of how our choices affect our health, and the health of our community.
  • Ensure that the promises of health care reform result in improved health for African Americans.
  • Help individuals address stress and resolve trauma.
  • Bridge the health gap for African Americans, eliminating all disparities in the areas of smoking, obesity, and mental health by 2020.
  • Address issues of racism in health care in the Twin Cities.
  • Help our community to heal.
