Mission: Improving Black COVID-19 Vaccinations

February 11, 2021

Amid strong skepticism based on historic distrust, the fact remains, African Americans desperately need to be vaccinated against the deadly coronavirus, especially given an estimated death rate of at least twice that of their White counterparts. Here in North Carolina, according to figures from the N.C. Dept. of Health and Human Services, while Whites in […]

COVID-19: Fewer people driving but more driving deaths

January 28, 2021

As I was paying my car insurance, I noticed that my carrier said I had received an auto rate reduction of up to 10 percent because they expected fewer accidents as more customers were driving less during this pandemic. Now I certainly did appreciate that decrease in my rate but I wondered if there were […]

Time to take charge of your health

January 21, 2021

400,000 Americans have perished due to the COVID-19 virus. It is not a secret that the virus has laid bare the fact that many people of color are not as healthy as they perhaps should be. There are institutional changes in health care that must take place to correct inequities, but there are things that […]

Get your COVID vaccine. Be proactive. Protect yourself and your family

January 14, 2021

As I start to write this article, the number of Americans that have died from COVID-19 now tops 370,000, a number that I cannot wrap my brain around and truly causes me intense pain. We are losing 3,000 people a day. We are hearing across the country that hospital capacity is at its limit. We […]

My wishes for a healthier new year

December 31, 2020

The holidays are a time of hope and renewal. We all have our list of goodies and wishes we would like to have received this year. My main, wish if it would have been possible, would have been for COVID-19 to have gone away. That unfortunately did not happen. More than 325,000 people just in […]

Gratitude in the Rough Place

December 24, 2020

Have you ever heard the words “Be grateful” when you feel life could not be worse? Does it make you want to roll your eyes when people start to talk about gratitude journals and lists? Feeling grateful in the rough place is a lot like forgiveness (another concept that gets an eye-roll from many). It’s […]

N.C. Black female scientist responsible for COVID-19 vaccine

December 16, 2020

“Let us salute Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett for her role in developing this vaccine,” posted Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman, president of the N.C. NAACP, to his Facebook page Monday. In case anyone seeing Dr. Spearman’s post wasn’t clear on who he was referring to, it was the notable revelation that a Black female immunologist at […]

The hidden harm fostered by COVID-19

December 11, 2020

COVID-19 presents its own new set of rules. As we struggle to find a sense of normalcy in these difficult times, we realize that COVID-19 has unfortunately changed the landscape that we felt we knew so well. COVID-19 has changed the nomenclature. We speak excessively about the numbers of people that have been hospitalized, infected, […]

The Violence at Home

December 2, 2020

Not being able to work, live, and socialize in the ways that were once normal in order to be as physically distant as possible has sequestered us to the safety of our homes. Safety, for some, is a relative word, and […]
