Empowering Black people with chronic diseases to thrive, not just survive.

Challenges of Chronic Conditions

The bad news is that chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease can last long and may not have a cure. The good news is that they can be managed through the right care, medicines, and lifestyle changes like healthy eating and exercising.

It’s true that chronic diseases impact the Black community more than others in the U.S. These differences can be due to family health history, lack of access to healthy foods, or even racism.

At NOWINCLUDED we want to close these gaps to improve Black health. Together we can conquer these chronic issues and thrive.

Why You Should Be Included

When we are not included in clinical research, we can’t be sure if a treatment will work just as well or be just as safe for us as it will for other races.

By participating in clinical research, we can give ourselves a chance to have treatments that may work better and be safer for us.

Learning more about clinical research can be a critical step in improving health outcomes for future generations.
