From high blood pressure and lupus to eczema and fibroids, there are a number of conditions that affect Black people at a higher rate than other groups. We also suffer from trauma and stress which can negatively impact our health, especially in recent years.

SHIFTER’s Black Health page provides articles, information and resources to help you get on top of your health and improve your lifestyle.

We not only focus on your physical health, but on your mental health. We are partnering with medical practitioners, health experts, and everyday people like yourself to share the information and tips you need.

We will also provide resources regarding health for children and youth. When we talk about Black health, we tend to talk about adults, but Black children and youth are also important because of the pressures of school, social media, peer pressure, and more.
