According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease, cancer and stroke are the leading causes of death for African Americans. In an effort to raise awareness and serve as a nationwide resource, Vistra launched BlackFamilyWellness.com. Designed as an educational tool, BlackFamilyWellness.com provides information regarding prevalent health issues and disparities, tips on preventive care and the importance of a healthy lifestyle to the black community.

Research shows African Americans are not only genetically susceptible to certain serious health conditions, but have higher mortality rates than other population groups. BlackHealthWellness.com offers access to in-depth material highlighting prevalent health issues as well as symptoms, risk factors, treatments and statistics. With evidence linking lifestyle choices to general wellbeing, BlackFamilyWellness.com also examines how the four critical aspects of fitness, diet, sexual health and stress influence and manage overall health.

Since preventive care is key to maintaining health, BlackFamilyWellness.com offers wellness visit guidelines for men, women and children along with a calendar listing of upcoming health forums and conferences as well as a locator tool to schedule checkups.

The website will feature guest writers, columnists and researchers that publish information directed at African American audiences. The site will also serve as a one stop shop for those interested in attending conferences, education seminars and better understanding health and disparity issues that affect African Americans.
