African-American 365 Health at Walgreens Corporate Office

February 5, 2014

African-American 365 Health program

Yesterday, I spoke at Walgreens for Black History Month at their corporate office. African-American 365 Health was a program focusing on health issues for African Americans.

The program was a panel discussion. The distinguished panel included Dr. La Mar Hasbrouck, director of Illinois Department of Health; Dr. Courtney Hollowell, chairman of urology, Cook Country Hospitals and Health System; Andrea Zopp, president and CEO, Chicago Urban League; and Sherrise Trotz, executive pharmacy director, Midwest Operations Walgreens.

I was honored to have been asked to participate in this event. Walgreens employees made up the audience. They also live streamed the program to their hundreds of employees at their desks. It was a great discussion on the critical health issues for African Americans.

Here are most of my remarks.
