The Health Equity Alliance of Tallahassee (HEAT) will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Conference Room A at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Here are the highlights from the proposed agenda:

  • Hopefully we will be able to report good news from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation about our application to the Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities program for work on policy change to promote access to healthy foods in Leon County. Fingers crossed!
  • We will get an update on community events we will help to organize during the re-broadcast of Unnatural Causes (http://unnaturalcauses.org/) on WFSU in January.
  • We will discuss our project on stress, racism, and blood pressure. I will present preliminary results on experiences of racism among African Americans in Tallahassee, and we will discuss the ethical and political implications of collecting genetic data in the later community survey.
  • Please join us and add your voice to the conversation. Please contact us if you would like to reserve a dinner ($5) or if you have other items you’d like to add to the agenda.
