Event description

Description

"I think that a very important message is that improving the health of our community isn't just the responsibility of the hospital and the doctors. It's really the entire community has to be engaged."

-Dr. St. Peter

Kansas Health Institute

The Kujma Collective Steering Committee identified an A-Z list of health disparities that impact Black women. We are now asking Topeka to help us conduct a deeper dive into these findings over the next nine months.


Will YOU join us? Will you help us create The Kujima Report: An A-Z Look at Health Disparities that Impact Black Women?

FAQs

What is the time committment of this coalition?

We are respectfully asking members of the Kujima Collective to commit to both a general body monthly meeting and sub-group monthly meeting between the months of September 2018 and April 2019.

  • General body meetings are held the First Friday of every month for 75 minutes.
  • The sub-group monthly meetings will be determined based up sub-group availability. (Allow a minimum two hours for this meeting)

Are there minimum age requirements to join Kujima Collective?

As long as you are old enough to commit to making Black women's health a top priority, you are old enough to join.

What are my parking options while attending the meetings?

The City of Topeka offers two hours of free street parking at certain meters downtown. Get there early and find a spot near 8th and Kansas. If there is no free parking available, you main park in the parking garage located off 8th and Kansas.

What can I bring into the meetings?

Bring an open mind, a willingness to work, and a commitment to raise awareness. Ohhhhhh, a high five and/or a hug would be appreciated.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can contact either Chris Omni or Marti Lewis by emailing info@kujimahealth.com.
