April is National Minority Health Month

Making your health a top priority is of utmost importance. Be empowered and make sure you know what is going on with your body. Is your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels normal? Have you had a physical within the last year? Are you informed of your family’s history with regards to hereditary diseases and the like? We want you to be proactive when it comes to your health.

Know that most of the times African-Americans are more likely to lose their lives to certain diseases at disproportionate rates compared to other races. This week is also Minority Cancer Awareness Week, seek out information, learn the signs and remember that early detection is the key to survival for most cancers.

Check out Midnight Management’s Founder & CEO, Tiffany Braxton’s blog, BlackWomenStandUp.com where she is the Co-Founder and learn all about their Gynecological and Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative “Love Your Va-Jay-Jay Day” fueled by the hashtag #CheckUpOnIt. Lots of information has been shared this week with regards to gynecological cancers on the site and via their Twitter page @BlkWomenStandUp.

Let’s keep the conversation surrounding health ongoing beyond National Minority Health Month. We recently lost a Hip-Hop Legend to complications with Diabetes, Phife Dawg from Tribe Called Quest, and Doug Banks a long-time radio personality. R.I.P. to these Kings. Both diabetes and cancer are two diseases that plague African-American families and communities, so it is in our best interest to empower ourselves with information for awareness and prevention.
