The series, which will take place from 6-7 p.m. every Thursday in February, is presented by University Hospitals Brain Health and Memory Center. It will air live via Zoom beginning on Feb. 4 and include "a brief historical talk followed by a presentation about medical information or social issues pertinent to the Black community."
“In 2020, we opened the Brain Health Clinic at the UH Otis Moss, Jr., Health Center,” said Alan Lerner, MD, Director of the UH Brain Health and Memory Center and Professor of Neurology at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. “In our continuing work to connect to the community, we are offering these sessions that look at some of the special history of the Fairfax community and significant medical and social issues faced by the community and our nation today.”
Added Carla Harwell, MD, Medical Director of the Otis Moss, Jr. Health Center: “We hope that people will join us for these Webinars. It is a chance to learn fascinating history of our community as well as an opportunity to ask questions and get answers from experts. The COVID pandemic has taught us how important it is to have a community for social support and a place where reliable information can be made available and discussed.”
