This slide-show is a pictorial sampling of the 100 community health leaders who attended the AACHEC’s May 3rd Health Conference at the University of California at San Francisco, Mission Bay Campus. Participants received the latest data on health outcomes by race and neighborhoods, explored health policies, participated in self-care activities and sampled complementary alternative medicines such as acupuncture, massage and chiropractic services. The conference theme was: “Living and Dying in San Francisco: Rethinking Health in the Black Community. To learn more about the conference or upcoming neighborhood health summits, please contact us. We believe health care is a human right and good health a personal responsibility.
