Just in time for Black History Month, The First Lady of Nutrition is honored to welcome Dr. Richard Walker to discuss his highly practical and easy-to-use guide, Black Health Matters. Richard W. Walker, Jr., MD, received his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, and completed his residency at the University of Michigan. It’s no secret that the Black community tops the list of groups afflicted by obesity, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure, sickle cell disease and cancer. According to Dr. Walker, what the statistics do not show is the pain, misery, and despair that these conditions create—not only for the individual but also for family and friends. Join this highly informative discussion as Ann Louise and Dr. Walker discuss, from his extensive research, a number of commonsense ways to prevent, manage, and possibly eliminate these killers, turning the tide of not only African American health, but all people everywhere. Black Health Matters is an important step towards achieving a healthier, longer life for millions of people and gives us “the vital facts you must know to protect your health and that of your loved ones."
