As people go from home health care, to nursing homes to hospice, advanced care planning documentation completions increase. In 2020, Advanced Directive completions among black patients increased by 41 percent, yet this number is still less than non-persons of color. My speaking addresses this disparity and works to align end-of-life care preferences and documentation for all people.
I have had the honor to be a featured presenter at The Center for African American Health Annual Collaborative Health Fair and for the Colorado Black Heath Collaborative Annual Family Black Party. As an advisory board member of the Mental Health Center of Denver Dahlia Campus, I have had the privilege to speak on several issues related to health and wellness. I have run several online programs. The most successful is named, Incarceration to Transformation, where the incarceration is by a person’s own self-inflicted limitations. My public speaking style is more conversational and less like a presentation.
