Focus on health.
As principal investigator of the BFAIRR (Black Females: Assessment and Interventions to Reduce Risk) trial, I was recently asked to put a brief editorial [package] together with basic information on preventing heart disease [including maintaining normal blood pressure, cholesterol levels and a body mass index of 24 or less]. I am forwarding it on to you, for use at your discretion.
Thanks for helping to keep us informed.

I AM ONE, OF TWO BLACK REGISTERED NURSES who are owners of a home healthcare agency. Our home aides provide assistance to the elderly and disabled. We love all of the articles featured in BE.
We would like to see more articles featured regarding healthcare agencies and the importance of black ownership. There is so much information regarding the future of healthcare that black people need to be made aware of.
This type of business is very, very different from other businesses because it is 100% service oriented. Unlike other companies that may have collateral to help secure a start-up loan, in-home aide care doesn't have equipment, computers, etc. In home aide care has people who are using their hearts and hands to provide services. We have had to be very prayerful and creative over the last three years in starting and maintaining operations.
