Bert Scott, the newly elected Chairman of the American Heart Association spoke with Roland Martin prior to their 2019 National EmPOWERED to Serve Business Accelerator event at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Scott explained, 90 percent of people’s health is determined by their environmental factors — Where they live, what they eat, how they eat, the stresses in the community.”
The other ten percent is clinical and in the United States, for many that ten percent is not enough.
The American Heart Association EmPOWERED to Serve Business Accelerator provides training, financial grants and fuels entrepreneurs’ mission to address health barriers so they can bridge the gap when clinical health coverage does not meet the need of undeserved communities.
