The Role of the African American Wellness Project By Dr. Michael A. Lenoir, M.D., Chairman of the AAWP.
Have you ever gone to see a medical doctor and wondered if you got the most out of that experience? You might have felt rushed or uncomfortable about asking questions. Have you ever been given a diagnosis, with serious consequences and not understood exactly what it meant or what you should do next? Well, you are not alone.
It is our belief that while good health begins with diet and exercise, once you enter the health care system, you must be organized to get the most out of it.
This guide was developed to assist the African American community and other communities to better utilize the health care system. The most informed consumer gets the best care. That is true when you shop for food and other necessities and it’s true for health care. This guide is intended to assist you in taking control of your physician visits.
