In this year's commemoration and celebration of Black History Month, Queens Public Library aims to spotlight Black Health and Wellness from a holistic lens. Health disparities and discrimination are harsh realities that gravely affect Black communities. These deep-rooted inequalities in access to healthcare and wellness pre-date the pandemic, and COVID-19 has made these disparities even more evident.
Please join us as we raise public awareness about physical, mental, social-emotional, and financial health and wellness through innovative programming that will benefit you and the whole family. Keep track of your journey with our journal – and learn about Black trailblazers who have been medical pioneers. Check out our Black History book recommendations and discover your next read!
