Mayo Clinic health disparities research investigators and administrators were in wide attendance at the recent Healthy Churches 2020 Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina.   Healthy Churches 2020 is a faith-based health initiative by The Balm in Gilead organization, designed to meet the unique needs of African American and African congregations that strive to become community centers for health education and disease prevention.  The Conference is a three-day national capacity building and training conference for faith leaders, health directors, coordinators, nurses and members of congregational health ministries.  Mayo participants in the Conference included OHDR Pilot Award recipients, health disparities researchers LaPrincess Brewer, M.D., Christopher Pullins, M.D., and OHDR representatives, including Steering Committee member Floyd Willis, M.D., and staff members Monica Albertie, M.H.A. and Elizabeth Pantoja.HealthyChurches2020-2
