BCMSF and ABC Partner to Promote Healthy Hearts
January 27, 2022
In November 2021, the Baltimore City Medical Society Foundation (BCMSF) co-hosted the Association of Black Cardiologists’ (ABC) annual “Spirit of the Heart Community Forum and Wellness Symposium,” the first held in Baltimore.
During the nearly two-hour virtual session, speakers representing faith, education, and health organizations shared their current efforts to reduce hypertension and deaths related to cardiovascular conditions in Baltimore’s black communities.
In addition to the symposium, BCMSF will work with ABC to implement other components of the “Spirit” initiative during this year. These include a community health fair, “messages from the faith community,” and establishment of a community and patient health advocate program.
