Obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, breast cancer and asthma are diseases that affect us all, but have a significantly disproportionate affect on African Americans and other minorities. We know that education, prevention efforts and an end to ethnic and racial disparities can make the difference. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed a program called REACH - Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health. There is a REACH program in Hampton Roads, and on the next Another View we'll talk about it with guests Joyce Jones Guinyard, REACH Project Manager and Community Liaison with the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health; Terrance Afer-Anderson, Health Educator with the Norfolk Department of Public Health; and Amy Paulson, Director of CINCH with EVMS.

Here is a scary fact: Smoking causes more deaths in the US each year than AIDS, alcohol, cocaine, heroin, homicide, suicide, motor vehicle crashes and fires - combined! Yet 23% of African American males smoke, and 15% of African American females smoke. We all know that smoking is addictive and leads to all kinds of health issues, yet cigarettes are still sold, people still buy them, and tobacco companies continue to bombard the community, particularly the African American community, with cigarette ads. Why does this happen? On the next Another View we'll talk about smoking, the harmful effects, and examine just how well cessation programs work. Join host Barbara Hamm Lee, along with guest host, Dr. Keith Newby for critical information that could literally save your life! Plus Lisa Godley brings us the inspiring music of Dr. Adolphus Hailstork. It's all on Another View, Friday, April 25 at NOON on 89.5 WHRV-FM or stream us live on this blog!
