    What is good mental health? What role do culture, race, age, gender, and class play in our mental health? The Office of Minority Health has designated April as National Minority Health Month to raise awareness about health disparities that continue to affect racial and ethnic minorities.
    Today’s show will examine mental health disparities among African Americans and Black women in particular. My guest is Michele Wheeler who is the director of 2040 Partners for Health and partner in the CU Immersion and Community Engagement Project in Denver.

    Cancer Health Disparities In The LGBT Community

    in Health

     
    It’s estimated there are over 1 million LGBT cancer survivors in the country today, and there’s reason to believe people in the LGBT community are carrying a disproportionate cancer burden. Health disparities in the LGBT community are caused by multiple factors that aren’t due to any physiological or genetic differences between lesbians and heterosexuals. Mark your calendars- my guest, Liz Margolies of The National LGBT Cancer Network will address the impact of stress, and the stigma of living with homophobia and discrimination that more than doubles the risk of lesbian’s developing cancer; to listen or comment call: 347-945-5853

    BROTHERS AND SISTERS ... TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES 


    Health disparities between African Americans and other racial and ethnic populations are striking and apparent in life expectancy, death rates, infant mortality, and other measures of health status and risk conditions and behaviors.


    When you look at the 10 Leading Causes of Death for African Americans, you find that most of them are substantially preventable by making some lifestyle changes. The question becomes, do we, as a people, have access to that information and secondly why are we in this situation in the first place. 


    Join Alex Primo, Asha Zuri, and Joe Whitfield Thursday at 9 pm EST as we explore the sicknesses and ailments that plague our people and some possible ways to remedy them. We will look at common issues such as Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, and other health concerns of Melanated people. 



    African Americans in 2009 had the largest death rates from heart disease and stroke compared with other racial and ethnic populations.
    From 2007-2010, the largest prevalence of hypertension was among adults aged 65 years and older, African American adults, US-born adults, adults with less than a college education, adults who received public health insurance (18- 64 years old) and those with diabetes, obesity, or a disability, compared with their counterparts.
    The prevalence of obesity among adults from 2007-2010 was largest among African American women compared with white and Mexican American women and men.
