About this Event

The Council on Black Health (CBH) seeks to have a significant impact on health in Black communities through collaboration, discovery, and innovation. Formerly known as the African American Collaborative Obesity Research Network (AACORN), the CBH builds on AACORN’s 15-year legacy of developing and distributing information about ways to improve the health status of Black Americans.

The inaugural Council on Black Health National Workshop will focus on building the collective capacity of Black scholars, institutions and change agents to plan and promote a high impact action agenda devoted to changing the course of Black health for the better and for the long term. The 2020 priorities for closing research-to-action translation gaps will point the way to positive impacts on Black health risks and outcomes.

Plan to attend this workshop and lend your energy, experience, expertise and perspectives to the dialogue.
