Healthy Living for Black Women 40-55Streaming Video - 2006
In America, black women have statistically high incidences of certain illnesses and conditions. Therefore, as they approach their menopausal years-a time of greater health risks for all women-it is especially important that they focus their attention on wellness. In this program hosted by dancer/celebrity Debbie Allen, several black women talk about their midlife health concerns, while two doctors and a diabetes educator discuss the importance of monitoring for diabetes, heart disease, and cancer; the pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy; and other topics, including the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
