Just Released: Largest Health Survey of African Americans in Denver
In 2011, the Center for African-American Health conducted the most scientific survey to-date of members of black churches in its Faith & Health Ministries program. In conjunction with researchers from the University of Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center and the Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, we surveyed more than 2,000 members of 42 black churches in metro Denver about their health status and their health behaviors. The findings documented that disparities continue to exist in some chronic diseases affecting African Americans and that we can still do more to improve some of our health behaviors. But there also was good news to be found in the survey results. Namely, we have done better at getting some health screenings and we are more aware of the signs and symptoms of some health conditions.
