Join Muniq in Celebrating Black History Month

February is Black History Month, honoring the triumphs and struggles of African Americans throughout U.S. history. The theme for this year is Black Health and Wellness, acknowledging both the Black scholars and medical practitioners in Western medicine, as well as other important healthcare contributions from the Black community.

At Muniq, we have an explicit aspiration to be a part of the solution to help close the pervasive health disparities gap for multicultural populations and the Black community specifically. Yes, these are ambitious goals, but the challenge is massive as our community is in such dire need of a path toward better health. In fact, African Americans deal with chronic diseases at nearly 2x the rate of the general population, so bold ambitions are necessary to address this significant challenge.

As a Black founder & CEO of a health and wellness business, I am deeply passionate about being a force for positive change. Here at Muniq, we strongly believe we can play a critical role in improving health outcomes for the Black community, which is one of the most important civil rights issues of our time. 

This month we’ll be raising awareness about the chronic health conditions that disproportionately affect Black and multicultural communities while providing solutions to help anyone regain control of their health. 

Stay tuned throughout the month for special Black History Month content every week that educates, inspires, and helps to support positive change. 

To kick off the series, here’s a video with a few of my thoughts on this year’s theme of Black History Month.

Supporting the Black Community

READ TIME: 2 MINUTES — As a founder & CEO of a Black-owned health and wellness business, I feel a strong obligation to be a part of the solution to help close the pervasive health disparities for minorities and the Black community specifically. The latest examples of devastating injustices against Black Americans, including the senseless and tragic deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and most recently, George Floyd, have added to the already ‘critical condition’ within the Black community.
