ICYMI: KCEN hosted a Community Conference: Building Collective Black Power in Healthcare featuring Black community advocates and thought-leaders Dr. Ben Danielson, Sybill Hippolyte, Danisha Jefferson-Abye, Jackie Vaughn, Ayan Musse, and more.

At the conference, leaders rolled-out a suite of initial health equity solutions to combat this reality. Read on to tap-in, take action and support this work below.
