“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The shameful excess mortality experienced by Black Americans, due to common but preventable chronic diseases is inexcusable. We can’t wait for things to change for our people. To do so would constitute neglect and history will record a lack of leadership by our organization. We must immediately embrace the innovative strategies available to help reduce high morbidity and mortality rates, which disproportionately burden Black people. Our goal is to improve the quality of Black lives through prevention rather than relying solely on medical treatment options.
We invite everyone to join the 100 Black Men of America in the fight against health inequities among our people, especially those exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, by first downloading the MIMI Rx app on your smart device and then beginning your own persistent biometric self-monitoring program.
