Covid 19 and the health and wellbeing of BAME communities

Recent government and health reports have highlighted that Covid-19 is disproportionately affecting the health and wellbeing of people from the BAME communities.

A new opportunity to learn more about the reasons why and to get key health information is now on offer, by listening to and putting questions to experts about your health, care and wellbeing in a series of online seminars in July.

The seminars have been prepared by Dudley Council’s Public Health, working together with Transforming Communities Together (with our Just Finance Black Country and Black Country Near Neighbours teams) and Cornerstone Community Church, to help BAME communities live longer, safe and healthier lives.

To join one or all of the five Friday evening online seminars in July, just book in advance on Eventbrite here.
