The Goal of this Symposium 

People of color, particularly African Americans continue to experience a wide range of health risk compared to others. The reasons for this health gap are many. However, knowing your risk and learning about behaviors to avoid can improve your health and empower your life.

The goal of this symposium is to provide the community with the information and resources to help them Save the Family. This will be accomplished through education and communication with healthcare and community experts. The Symposium Gateway to Wellness: Saving the Family while Saving Yourself, will have three main breakout sessions listed below to provide the most information to our targeted groups. 

Woman to Woman (Women Only)

Explore how you can be the best woman you can be physically, mentally and spiritually. This workshop will take you on a journey to find that inner joy of life and have it manifest where you are right now. As women you are naturally nurturers. You give so much of yourselves to others: children, spouse, parents, family members, friends and/or career. It’s time to commit to nurturing yourselves. 

We Are our Brothers Keeper (Men Only)

This interactive workshop will make men aware of their potential health challenges and provide strategies for them to improve and manage their overall health. Explore how you can be the best man you can be physically, mentally and spiritually. Time to take responsibility for your Health, Life and Family. The men’s closed session will be in a room renamed “VEGAS”. What Happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! 

Youth Program

This workshop will help you understand the many changes that are taking place in your life while transitioning into your teen years ‘There is No App for Life’.  You will walk away with the tools you need to make positive life decisions.
