Black Leadership Advisory Committee (BLAC)
With African Americans at an exponentially higher lifetime risk of acquiring HIV and other chronic conditions, such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease, CrescentCare is prioritizing efforts to reduce these disparities. The Black Leadership Advisory Committee (B.L.A.C.) was founded to respectfully guide CrescentCare’s efforts to improve health outcomes in the Black community in New Orleans; raising awareness around sexual health and overall well-being to reduce stigma, eliminate barriers to care, and end health disparities. B.L.A.C. also strives to highlight contributions that African Americans have made to healthcare and our community, as well as celebrate all aspects of Black culture.
