This webinar was very timely, very honest, and very informative. I would like to see this become an ongoing webinar, as CHWs stand in the middle of advocacy for African-Americans who have continued to experience Health Disparities, Food Swamps & Deserts, and Chronic Disease for generations. I will say that for those of us who are older in America, this behavior is nothing new, but we must not let this ball drop on our watch in our lifetime. Let's keep this conversation, possible solution banks, advocacy, and knowledge and challenge of policy and funding to alleviate Health Disparities going. Great Job UMEMBA Health Academy !
