About the event

From the comfort of their homes, participants will learn about topics including immune-boosting foods, diabetes prevention and reversal, heart health, and maintaining a healthy weight, as well as tips on planning a budget-friendly weekly or monthly menu with pantry staples.

People with underlying health conditions make up 94% of COVID-19 deaths in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans, who are affected disproportionately by these conditions, are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.

In the United States, 34 million people have diabetes, 93.3 million are obese, 18.2 million have coronary artery disease (the most common type of heart disease), 37 million have chronic kidney disease, 4.5 million have chronic liver disease, and 26.6 million have cancer; that’s 213 million Americans with one of more of these diseases or up to 65% of the U.S. population.
