This years Black History Month theme, Black Health and Wellness, provides us with an opportunity to recognize our Black healthcare workers who have worked to keep all of us as safe as possible from the pandemic. It also serves as a reminder about how important both physical and mental wellness is. Knowing of the past opens the door to the future. This Black History Month, we reflect on the life-changing contributions that Black Americans have made and continue to make to society we also look to the future and reimagine.
