Health and Well Being"
with Emeritus Professor
Ferdnand Jones (Brown University) & Ray
Funded by the Rhode Island Committee for the Humanities there is a series of ten public forums titled "The Covenant with Black America" is based on New York Times bestseller, "The Covenant" edited by Tavis Smiley.
The discussant for this public forum is professor emeritus of psychology at Brown University and currently guest faculty member at Sarah Lawrence College Ferdinand Jones, with moderator Ray Rickman.
Health and Well Being (Securing the right to healthcare and well being)
The health of African Americans has suffered greatly because of social disparities that rendered Blacks and therefore their treatment less than equal in quality and access. Many things must change to secure the right healthcare, healthy living, and well-being in America. There are individual, community, and governmental responsibilities for making this happen and achieving these goals. Somehow we must bring these different levels of responsibility together in a concerted effort to eliminate disparities in healthcare and health outcomes.
