Health and Wellness Chat with Indy Black Millennials
During this pandemic we know it can be very easy to let our health and wellness fall astray. We may find ourselves lacking the energy and enthusiasm we once had just a few short weeks ago and turning more to unhealthy habits to fill these unfamiliar voids.
Mental Health Check In with Indy Black Millennials
As we are all experiencing these challenging times we want you to know that we are in it together! YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Dealing with the unknown of this virus, coping with job loss, social distancing, and isolation can take an emotional toll on us all and it is important that these feelings be addressed and not suppressed.
Because of this we will be hosting another virtual chat to discuss how we are feeling and the healthy ways in which we can address these emotions.
We at Indy Black Millennials felt it not only necessary but imperative that we do our part to address the concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19) as it continues to evolve and change daily. We all share a deep concern and are taking every precaution to make sure we are keeping ourselves and those around us healthy but questions still remain. Because of this, we will be hosting a virtual chat with Dr. Itoro Okpokho, a family medicine specialist, to discuss this pandemic.
In Partnership with Educate ME, MelantED Leaders and MURDOCK LLC, join us for an evening with cocktails to close out Black History Month with a gathering to celebrate #BlackExcellence, network, and connect with other Black professionals around the city.
