Healthy Bodies, Healthy Souls

Picture of Scott Goldberg

The rate of diabetes among African-American adults is 63% greater than the rate found in the general population. The problem is exacerbated in the inner-city where there are barriers to accessing healthy foods and participating in physical activity. In Baltimore, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has teamed up with African American churches to find creative, sustainable ways to bring down the obesity level among parishioners. I visited one church, Gospel Tabernacle, and filed this report.
