Studies continue to show African-Americans at greater risk of developing cancers and of finding cancers at later stages. This is why the American Cancer Society, along with NorthPoint Health and Wellness Center, Kappa Alpha Psi–St. Paul/Mpls Alumni Chapter, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority–Mpls/St. Paul Alumnae Chapter are holding the 2nd annual Twin City Health Summit, on September 25, at UROC, 2001 Plymouth Avenue in North Minneapolis. Preventing cancer throughout the community will be the focus as local area residents will get practical and innovative tips to stay well and get well.

The keynote speaker will be Daheia J. Barr-Anderson, PhD MSHP, University of Minnesota. She and other experts will offer practical tips to people on ways to get exercise and maintain a healthy diet, without relying on elaborate exercise gyms and/or more expensive– often impractical food choices. The focus will be on breast and prostate health.

“We know when folks are given real-practical solutions to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, people are more inclined to join in,” said Keith Allen, of the American Cancer Society. “And we know the healthier the lifestyle, the better chance you have of avoiding cancer.”

The summit runs from 10 am – 1 pm and is open to the community. A free lunch will be provided. There will also be great door prizes.
