Navigating Obstacles in African-American Health (NOAAH) (#638)
Two professionals with the Office of Health Equity at the Kentucky Department of Health discuss health disparities in Kentucky communities and the health equity movement in Kentucky. Dr. Torrie Harris, director of the Office of Health Equity and an assistant professor at the College of Public Health at the University of Kentucky, and epidemiologist Vivian Lasley-Bibbs discuss barriers to health care and identify resources within the health care services system.
Lasley-Bibbs is also launching a non-profit organization called NOAHH, which stands for Navigating Obstacles in African-American Health. NOAAH is a coalition of business leaders, health professionals, church and community leaders, cancer survivors, and others who are committed to decreasing the high cancer burden among African Americans.
