Join us for a panel discussion April 2018:

The Correlation of RACE and Health

According to a new study by the nonprofit organization Catalyst, 51-58% of all women of color and 60-64% of Black and Latino men pay an “emotional tax” due to micro-aggressions and exclusionary behavior in the workplace that’s detrimental to their overall health and ability to thrive. Join us to learn how to counteract this negative drain on your mind, body, and spirit with pointers on nutrition, spiritual practices, exercise and natural medicine.

Hear spiritual, health, and exercise experts Star Waters and Dr. Ose Okojie discuss how you can save your live and sanity through a vegan diet, spiritual practices, and exercise.

The first 50 POC will receive a copy of African American Vegan Starter Guide.

Featured Speakers:

Star Waters
Dr. Ose Okojie
