Black Enterprise To Address Racial Health Disparities At “Health Is Wealth Weekend”

by Black Vine

This month, BLACK ENTERPRISE, the No. 1 black digital media brand with more than 6 million unique visitors per month, will host the first Health is Wealth Weekend, powered by Walmart.

There will be talks from leading Black health and wellness experts and a conversation with NASCAR star Bubba Wallace. Attendees will be able to talk about racial differences in the Black community and learn life-changing tips and strategies for using improvements in physical, mental, and emotional health to increase their earning power and ability to build wealth.

Celebrities, influencers, and consumers will gather in Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday, Feb. 10, for a two-day, fun, uplifting, and inspiring experience that will provide key takeaways on important health topics ranging from managing stress and achieving a healthy body weight to building and protecting mental health.

Sharing their professional and personal experiences, featured speakers include Zakia Blain, founder and CEO of FBF Body; Dr. Bernard Ashby, founder of Comprehensive Vascular Care; Germaine Bold-Leftridge, CEO and founder of GBL Sales; Jodi Brockington, founder and CEO of Niara Consulting; Gerrell Webb, a Nashville-based celebrity fitness trainer; Dr. Kevin Billups, professor of medicine and urology and director of men’s health at Meharry Medical College; and a host of other health and wellness professionals.

The CEO of BLACK ENTERPRISE, Earl “Butch” Graves Jr., said, “At BLACK ENTERPRISE, we try to give our audience the tools they need to achieve equity and find growth opportunities in all parts of their lives. But we can only do that if we also address the racial and social problems that arise.”

“As the first event of its kind, Health is Wealth is just the beginning of how we will start important conversations and continue to support and improve the financial, physical, and emotional health of the Black community, which will make life better for everyone.”

Walmart is honored to be the presenting sponsor of Black Enterprise’s inaugural Health is Wealth weekend. “Through this initiative, we continue to advance racial equity in the U.S., with a particular focus on health disparities affecting Black and African American people,” said Regine Moore, director of constituent relations.

“At Walmart, we encourage our customers and associates that being “healthy” is a way of life that creates a chain reaction of good habits around emotional, physical, and financial well-being.”

The Black Enterprise Health is Wealth Weekend will be held at The Westin Nashville and is free for all to enjoy and learn. Walmart is the main sponsor, Gilead is the presenting sponsor, and Manulife/John Hancock is the platinum sponsor.
