I wanted to let you all know about an upcoming event that I may be attending at a new museum in right here in our area. I didn't know anything about this museum until two days ago and it's within a 10 minute drive from my house! I'm definitely taking a tour soon. Anyway, check out the info below. The information below was actually obtained from a press release for the LATIBAH Collard Green Museum. I enourage all who can attend to attend. I'm sure it will be quite informative!
Charlotte's newest history museum, LATIBAH Collard Green Museum, is proud to partner with local agencies to present a health-related, discussion symposium on some of these major health challenges of people of color. This event is presented not only as an urgent ‘need-to-know’ matter, but also in tribute to National Diabetes Awareness Month.
Panelist from: Community Health Intervention & Sickle Cell Agency, Carolinas CARE Partnership, C. W. Williams Community Health Center, and Mecklenburg County Health Department will discuss the critical health needs concerning ‘the daily practices of what we eat and how we live that impact the prevention and cure of major health concerns’ specifically sickle cell disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS. Other local health agencies have been invited to be on-hand to share materials and vital information on this important issue that will assist us all to be healthier.
This program is FREE to the public and will be presented during the “LATIBAH Talk” Black issues lecture-discussion series entitled “Health Challenges: Not a Death Sentence” on Friday, December 3 @ 7-8pm at the ArtHouse Center for Creative Expression in the NoDa area. .
The LATIBAH Museum is the anchor tenant in the ArtHouse Center for Creative Expression - NoDa located at 3103 Cullman Ave. - off 36th St. [‘cross the RR tracks] between North Davidson St and North Tryon St. To gain a more complete sense of the museum’s year-and-a-half growth and development, please visit the website. http://www.latibahmuseum.org/
