TENNESSEE IMMIGRANT AND MINORITY BUSINESS GROUP (TIMBG)

Minority and immigrant populations in the U.S. face a wide array of health disparities resulting from interacting individual, societal and structural factors. Many immigrant and refugee families coming into the United States are drastically underserved in needed areas of mental health and preventive care. Further disparities manifest as these groups adopt American habits, including high-processed diets and more sedentary lifestyles. Furthermore, American-born minority groups in the United States, including African Americans, Hispanic Americans, women, and other disenfranchised groups face various socioeconomic barriers, resulting in suboptimal health education, access & utilization of healthcare services, and ultimately poorer health outcomes. Addressing these disparities in immigrants and minorities will require collaborative efforts from community members, healthcare providers and community stakeholders and a critical look at strategi es to help communities effectively navigate healthcare systems in the United States. 

Our panel of experts will discuss these critical issues and how they affect the diverse populations in the Greater Nashville area. This event aims to provide useful strategies on Navigating Healthcare Systems in the United Statesand to connect attendees with useful information on health services in Tennessee. All attendees will also have the opportunity to introduce themselves and promote the work they do.
