This year’s National Urban Health Conference (NUHC) theme is “Living Healthy: Be An Agent For Change.” Each year the NUHC is one of the signature activities of the Chamber’s Healthy Eating, Healthy Living Initiative which brings together health service providers, hospitals, medical professionals, educational and religious institutions, elected officials, public officials, financial institutions, corporations, civic and community based organizations and local business to focus on those issues impacting the health and well-being of our communities. This year’s NUHC expands to over a full week covering an array of activities ranging from The Impact of Domestic Violence in our Communities to The Opioid Crisis in our Urban Communities to Women’s Financial Health to Spiritual Health and more.
“The National Urban Health Conference is an extremely important forum to discuss health issues that impact our communities and chart a course for how to be healthier in all facets of our lives. As a business organization we realize and hopefully we can help others realize how important our health is to our success in business, our quality of life, and our serve to our community and beyond” says Patricia Ricketts, VP Programs, The Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce
