ActNOW: Community Health Education Forum – Virtual Conference

The G.R.E.E.N. Foundation presents the ActNOW: Community Health Education Forum titled: ‘Prevention – Prevention & Intervention Through a Plant-Based Diet’.

Join us with our guest speakers Dr. Ricardo Parker & Dr. Patric Schiltz as we talk black equity, benefits of research clinical trials, and how a plant-based diet can build your immune system.

The G.R.E.E.N Foundation’s (TGF) mission is to work with other outstanding organizations and individuals! This is an outstanding opportunity to learn about the African American / Black and African community. Learn how to debunk the myth about the “hard-to-reach”.

Join the conversation to learn how to reach all communities. It will be the best 1.5 hours investment of your time.

In our 15th year of community health education- this year, we launch our community forum platform with the same commitment of excellence. Our goal is to share and empower individuals to participate in healthier lifestyles while advocating to dismantle racial disparities in access to quality health information.

This year, community health education forum will include presentations focused both on plant-based nutrition, as well as scientific research from a cultural perspective with a legacy mindset. Both presentations will provide a deeper dive into the respective topics and allow for interactive discussion leading to a call to action.
