Black Health Matters to Kendra Lee

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.
