Prioritize Wellness to Close Racial Health Gap

Read this PND blog post by Shawn Dove and Dr. Phyllis Hubbard, CBMA’s CEO and director of CBMA’s Health and Healing Strategies, respectively, on why philanthropy plays a critical role in “promoting healthy behaviors and strengthening the wellness of leaders and caregivers, so that they, in turn, can create healthier environments for the young people of color they serve.”

“At the same time, leaders in philanthropy and the BMA field must look in the mirror and ask themselves how they can set an example by integrating health, wellness, and self-care into their collective and organizational ethos and culture. Only by embodying the type of leadership we want others to exhibit will we successfully create the transformative change needed to close America’s racial health gap.”
