89.3 WFPL Louisville says
It’s been thirty years since the federal government published the first report to examine African American and minority health disparities in the United States, but how much has changed? Join us for a lively conversation, led by a panel of experts in the Louisville community, on September 1st at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage. The panel will discuss the unique challenges still facing people of color in Kentucky and consider the effects of Kynect and Medicaid expansion, violence as a public health issue, mental health treatment, and how Kentucky measures up in providing quality care to minorities.

Panelists include: Dr. Stephanie Mayfield, Commissioner Department of Public Health; Dr. Wayne Tuckson, Colorectal Surgeon; Attica Scott; Robert Wood Johnson, Roadmaps to Health Community Coach; and Monnica Williams, Director Center for Mental Health Disparities. The panel will be moderated by Ja’Nel Johnson.

Program begins at 6:00 p.m., doors open at 5:30 p.m. Event is free and open to the public. The Kentucky Center for African American Heritage is located at 1701 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard Louisville, KY 40203 (at the intersection of 18th St. and Muhammad Ali Blvd. in West Louisville).

Special thanks to the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage for their generous donation of the event space.

The event will be held as part of The Next Louisville: Community Health. The Next Louisville project is a partnership of WFPL News, the Community Foundation of Louisville and the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.

Free parking is available in the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage lot, just next to the facility.
