This Month...
February is Black History Month and celebrates the rich cultural heritage, triumphs and adversities that are an indelible part of our country's history. I only recently learned that every year has a theme, and this year’s theme, “Black Health and Wellness,” focuses on: the legacy of Black scholars and medical practitioners while also discussing the Black community's experience with our healthcare system. This month is the perfect time to reflect on the social determinants of healthcare discrimination that disproportionally affect the urgency of care for Black people. These social determinants include the environmental conditions where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that contribute to a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes. Poverty, wealth inequality, food insecurity, and the lack of safe, affordable housing are just a few. Another important social factor leading to poor health outcomes and economic disadvantage is racism, because not only is it a stressor, but also impacts who gets what in America, particularly health care.

February comes from the Latin word februa, “to cleanse.”
The Roman calendar month of Februarius was named for Februalia, a festival of purification that took place during this period.
