Roslyn Daniels, Black Health Matters Founder and President, on Health Disparities and Exciting Communities About Health

 

 

 

About this episode:

In this episode, Roslyn Daniels, the founder and president of Black Health Matters, talks about how her organization educates and motivates African-American communities about taking care of one’s own health. 

Seeing her own grandparents die too soon and recognizing that, in many communities,  people are forced to choose between rent and healthcare, she realized that “access means nothing unless you have an understanding of the fundamentals of good health.”   

Using her background in media and direct-to-consumer marketing, Daniels established Black Health Matters. Its online presence and social media activity generate excitement in the public, presenting easy-to-digest information in a positive, upbeat way that appeals to a wide range of ages and interests. Its live events feature a stellar lineup of leading healthcare experts.

The 4th Annual Black Health Matters Summit will be hosted online July 18, 2020. The public can access this event free by checking out www.blackhealthmatters.com on July 18 and after that date as well. It will feature videos, resources and a lineup of featured speakers, including Michelle Obama.

In addition to her role with Black Health Matters, Daniels consults with the pharmaceutical industry. She has an extensive background in media and marketing, including director of business development for BET Networks. She also spearheaded the launch of Fitness magazine. She is a graduate of Boston University.
