Health disparities are rampant and especially in communities of color. With many of my family members and friends now deceased from mostly preventable diseases and conditions, I am especially concerned about the state of health within the African-American community. It’s a passion that I share with my guest blogger, Kendra Lee, who is editorial director of Black Health Matters.
Kendra Lee is an award-winning writer and editor who has provided editorial services on a wide variety of materials for clients such as the AFL-CIO, National Medical Association, Black Entertainment Television, LEXIS, the Health Resources Services Administration and the Office of Minority Health. She has been both a staff editor (Heart & Soul, YSB and Urbane magazines) and a contributing editor (The Crisis, Upscale and Soul of Virginia magazines). Lee is a contributing writer to four books (Like a Natural Woman, One Hand in My Pocket, Dr. Ro’s Ten Secrets to Livin’ Healthy, Tomorrow Begins Today: African American Women As We Age). She is currently editing a sports memoir and an anthology of about HBCUs and writing a book about surviving heartbreak. Lee, a 2012 National Institutes of Health Medicine in the Media fellow, is a graduate of Emerson College.
