HEALTH & WELLNESS
Studies have shown that African Americans suffer from a myriad of diseases at greater rates than any other population. The NMAC Health and Wellness Committee is dedicated to bringing awareness to this fact and teaching persons of color how to live in a manner that enhances overall wellbeing. Through fun and interactive events, the committee tackles difficult topics and teaches our community how to eat and live better. To this end, annually we host a Health Symposium to accomplish this goal and honor trailblazers in the field of Medicine.

Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes
Health and Wellness has created a team for the American Diabetes Association's annual Step Out walk. Because of the
conflict with NMAC Chapter meeting this year, we ask that donations be made to the cause. CLICK HERE for the NMAC-DST team link. Whatever contribution you can make will go towards diabetes research, education and prevention. Thank you for your support!
