In addition to offering a wide variety of cultural activities during the month of February, Stillman College’s Black History Month calendar included several programs that are not traditionally highlighted at this time of the year.
Through activities such as a health disparities presentation, a financial literacy seminar, specialized computer training classes, and a “Community and College Get Healthy Day,” which included exercise, games and nutritious snacks, Stillman has sought to address some of the most pressing needs facing the African American community.
Dr. Christine Rembert, who recently visited Stillman to present her research on health disparities, stated, “Discussing health disparities is important during African American History Month because it gives us an opportunity to learn about chronic illnesses that affect the Black community.”
