As we take a moment to honor and commemorate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr., the famous American civil rights leader who dedicated his life to achieving equality for people of all colors, let’s also reflect on some of his messages of peace and justice that touched many and continue to remain meaningful today. Dr. King’s teachings transcend civil rights, his speeches and writings are some of the most impactful ever written.
Please allow this quote to inspire and promote better healthcare, let it resonate in your hearts and mind as you go out and be of service in the communities near and far on Dr. King’s Holiday…please share and support those that are, have and may be going through……
“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane.”
Minorities are less likely to receive preventative healthcare services when compared with white counterparts. Minorities generally wait longer for those services and the services rendered are lower quality. For many conditions, minorities experience worse health outcomes. Health education allows for personal empowerment. Empowered patients can actively collaborate with their provider and achieve better health outcomes together. Sharing that knowledge can shift healthcare in an entire community.
It is with hope that you are empowered to live your best life and create healthy changes in OUR community, let’s talk about CANCER AWARENESS AND HEALTH EQUITY!
