Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Four prominent female doctors of color have joined forces to launch a new television program aimed at addressing the unique health concerns and inequities in women and the Black community called The C4PEMD. Members of the esteemed panel of experts are Drs. Amber K. Brooks, Tamika Knox, LaKesha Legree, and Kristen Trulear-Jackson.
During this roundtable-style talk show, the doctors will cover a myriad of topics from mental wellness to motherhood. The candid conversations will be informative-backed by research and science – but each doctor infuses her vibe and personality on the subject.
The C4PEMD was born out of our collective desire to effect REAL change in health disparities and women’s health,” said Dr. Brooks, “And the time is NOW. The global COVID19 pandemic has unmasked long-standing health disparities, offering a renewed opportunity to re-engage in authentic and transparent conversations; provide tangible and relatable healthcare information to persons of color and women; and empower and equip persons of color and women to take control of their emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing.”
