April 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
“Food Access and Diet in African American Communities”
The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. More than 37 million Americans, including 11 million children, suffered from food insecurity in 2018, and in 2019, 19% of Black households were food insecure, more than twice the rate of white households, according to the domestic hunger-relief organization Feeding America. To commemorate Minority Health Awareness Month, April’s “Dr. in the House With Dr. Terry Mason” radio program will discuss “Food Access and Diet in African American Communities.”
This monthly program is hosted by Karriem Watson, DHSc, MS, MPH, associate director of community outreach and engagement at the UI Cancer Center, and director of community based research at Mile Square Health Center, and Terry Mason, MD.
