This month, we celebrate Black History Month – a time to honor the history and achievements of Black Americans and reflect on the centuries of struggle, racism, discrimination, inequality and inequity. Reflecting on our past creates the opportunity to ensure a healthier future.
Every February, we host the Central Texas African American Family Support Conference (CTAAFSC). This conference is an opportunity to increase health equity while exploring health solutions, fostering relationships, reducing stigma and improving access to care. In its 21st year, the conference was virtual for the first time in response to the pandemic.
