Black Health Matters is pleased to work with Close the Gap to create the ultimate educational program on heart disease and healthy living. Our collaboration offers a fresh take on managing chronic disease in the age of Covid-19.
Our Summit is anchored by some of the best and brightest in medicine for optimal learnings and affirmations. Our community stakeholders are the foundation in which this program is built. Detroit’s civic minded churches in addition to fraternities, sororities enable Detroit residents to build an inclusive culture of health.
This program is free and open to the public so that thousands will benefit from the empowerment and inspiration that this program will provide.
Welcome to the Close the Gap Virtual Health Summit, sponsored by Boston Scientific and Black Health Matters! We are so glad you are here! This event was developed to provide you with access to insights and advice from the best physicians and community partners from Detroit who are committed to empowering you to be advocates for health – for yourself and your community #BlackHealthMatters.
Long before COVID-19, we have known that health disparities disproportionately shortened the lives of Black people. The devastating effects from the pandemic, combined with the collective outcry for long overdue social change, are a call to action for us to dismantle the barriers that we face as a community. At Boston Scientific, a leading medical device manufacturer, our goal is to provide you with the awareness, educational materials, and connections to empower you to be a powerful advocate for your own health and for the health of your loved ones. Through our Close the Gap initiative, we are committed to equipping you with the information that you need to #FightForHealthEquity.
It is our pleasure to be partnering with Black Health Matters to bring this valuable information to you. It is our sincere hope that you take advantage of this unique opportunity to connect with healthcare providers, community leaders, health and wellness experts who are here, focused on you! Thank you for coming!
