Black African History&Future Months Free Community Events: Hypertension Vs You By Dr Anthony Egboh
December 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Save for Later
You are very welcome to ‘Hypertension Vs You’- a FREE community development for health talk and mature open discussion forum on hypertension (High blood-pressure) interactively with Dr Anthony Egboh a local Lewisham Borough based doctor of African descent. Dr Anthony Egboh is a London-born General Practitioner (GP), with years of experience in family health. He has active interests in health and well-being for families, both in the local and global community. Currently, he works closely with mywaffl (health app) and writes monthly health blogs.
This health event is open to all communities-people from all places, races and faces but most especially black African and Caribbean people. The UK British NHS says:
If you’re African or African Caribbean and you live in the UK, you’re more likely than people from other cultures to have certain health conditions, including high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes and prostate cancer.
This is also the case for some mixed-race people of African or African Caribbean descent.
Experts aren’t sure why these conditions are more common in people of African and African Caribbean origin, but they think it may be linked to diet, lifestyle and different ways of storing fat in the body.
Time: 7pm – 9pm
followed by unlimited community health networking over Christmas Party Snacks and tea in reception.
