Bignall Headshot_0.jpgThis past week, I had the privilege of attending a panel discussion on health in the African American community hosted by my local church. Black community health professionals shared insightful advice, promoting health-seeking behavior in communities of color.

It was painful to hear how little my community trusted health professionals like me to be a part of their healing.
