Health Unity Event in Birmingham

A special event will take place in Birmingham on 31 October aimed at bridging black communities and health and care research. Entitled Health Unity: Bridging Communities and Research, the free event will take place at the Legacy Centre of Excellence in Ashton, Birmingham, as part of Black History Month 2023. There will be a number of sessions looking at understanding research, community stories and creative spaces – with children being given the opportunity for face painting and balloon modelling.

Organiser and spokesperson Tony Kelly says, “There is a feeling, whether due to myths or misconceptions – or even reality – that black people do not put themselves forward for any type of medical research which can be beneficial to us. This event is geared towards how to demystify that, so I am encouraging our community to attend and make their voices heard – and that includes other ethnic groups.”
