Taking Back Control of Your Health

I’ve always been really transparent about my passion for educating others to take action with their health. Growing up, my maternal and paternal grandmother passed away at a very young age due to health complications. My maternal grandmother passed away when I was just a few months old. My paternal grandmother was in the hospital all of my life, due to going into a diabetic coma, and she never fully recovered after coming out of her coma. I’ve always questioned what preventative measures could have taken place to have them here with me today, and what resources my family could use to stay on top of our health. 

Like many people growing up without both of my grandmother’s was hard. Now that I’m raising a young adult it’s so important to pass on resources to my son, family and community so that they can make better choices in life, and really educate themselves, and reduce being at higher risk.

One of my goals for this year is to focus on my overall health and to continue to lead by example with my son. Black men are at greater risk with heart health, and resources like TakeActionForHealth.org really allow me to give my son access to the resources he needs at his fingertips.

Emotional health is such an oversight in the Black community. I once read a quote that read “your friends and family are not your therapist.”, With resources like TakeActionForHealth.org, it makes it so much more accessible for people in the Black community to get the help Emotional help that they need. I know your family is their to support and listen, and be there for you in any way. However, it's just nice to not always have a draining conversation or feel as if you're a burden to someone else. You can easily access TakeActionForHealth.org for your Emotional Health needs. 

 


What I love about TakeActionForHealth.org is that this site aims to reduce some of the greatest health risks facing the Black community today:
  • Emotional Health
  • Cancer
  • Heart Health
  • Prediabetes
  • Kidney Health
TakeActionForHealth.org is exclusively developed for the Black community. I’m thankful for TakeActionForHealth.org for providing the cultural sensitivity that the Black Community needs and trying to reduce the health disparities. What I love about this site is that it’s super easy to use and navigate through. Plus, it’s also FREE.
