Black Health Matters, a health and wellness communications platform, will host its 4th Black Health Matters Summit virtually on July 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The platform will unveil its new slogan: “I Vote Because #BlackHealthMatters.”

“Now more than ever we live in a state of urgency that we want used to advance health equity. Voting provides that opportunity,” said Roslyn Young-Daniels, Black Health Matters president and founder. To boost that effort, the group is partnering with When We All Vote— a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization launched by co-chair Michelle Obama in 2018 to increase participation in elections.
