Health Webinar – “Understanding Blood & STEM Donations”


Health inequalities faced by the black community is sometimes due to our own ignorance or lack of information.

As representative of the Over 50s Black Men community, we are Grandfathers, Fathers and Uncles, it is our duty to learn and understand more, so that we can better inform, educate, and address health inequalities in our community.

Let us grab this opportunity to ask the tough questions of the organisations talking to/educating our children and grandchildren at thier schools/universities/online.

Let them hear the voices of the black Fathers and Grandfathers.
