Giving Tuesday: Your gift helps to close the gap! - https://mailchi.mp/closingthegapinhealthcare/givingtuesday

11/30/2021

Health disparities exist....but they shouldn’t. Help us close the gap this Giving Tuesday (today, Nov 30) by making a donation to Closing The Gap in Healthcare. 100% of your donation will go toward our continued efforts to educate African Americans and other minorities about health disparities that exist in our communities and share ways that you can address those disparities.

During 2021, we have continued to focus on shining a spotlight on the coronavirus pandemic and addressing vaccine hesitancy, in addition to other health disparities that our communities have faced for hundreds of years such as diabetes and hypertension. Our efforts to bring awareness to these disparities and share information about how you can be proactive about your health will continue in 2022 ....with your help.

Giving Tuesday is today! And we’ve set an aggressive goal to raise $7,500. Can you help us by contributing $10, $15, $25 to our fundraiser? Any amount will be helpful towards our efforts to Close The Gap in Health Disparities for African Americans and the Underserved.

Yours in good health,
Thaddeus J. Bell, MD

What's going on?
It is difficult to get health information to younger people because the way they get information is not in the traditional manners one may think. I have discussed this phenomenon with folk who should know. They agree. Most young black folk do not get information in the traditional ways of the past. They seldom read the newspaper or magazines. Most do not watch CNN, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NBN, and the like. Radio new listening for health new is almost non-existent.
Getting health information to young black folk is indeed a challenge. Keeping their attention is a challenge.
Facebook, tic tak, snapceck and other social media platforms make getting the message out difficult.
It is a paradox indeed. The instrument for schooling at an all-time high and health education appears to be at an all-time low.
If you have some ideas, let me know. I am Thaddeus John Bell, MD. I am interested in closing the gap in health for our younger people.

Did you know that children born today can expect to live to be 100 years old, not sure about Black people or people of color. (? )WOW!

06/06/2021

I have noticed that mothers and fathers and grandparents who have young budding healthcare professionals , have better insight into taking care of themselves. Health literacy seems to go to another level. These patients are “Green Light “ patients and that a good thing. I am Thaddeus John Bell, MD

06/03/2021

Recently found out that 2 of my patients had children and grandchildren who graduated from medical school at MUSC. It was a feel-good moment today. I have the opportunity to speak to both of them. How cool is that? We need more African Americans in the health care profession.

COVID 19 and Cancer.
African-Americans are being affected by this pandemic in ways many are not aware. African Americans are more likely to catch COVID and die from it 3 times greater than white people and are more likely to have major complications if they have cancer( cancer survivors). Vaccine hesitancy puts people who have cancer at major risk for a bad outcome( immune systems could experience a double whammy.) Now your system has to deal with l a severe infection and an already weak immune system from cancer.
I hope you get the picture. Join me in the I got it campaign and get the vaccine. Share this information with your family and friends.
I am Dr. Thaddeus John Bell giving you information you can trust.

When African-Americans are not at the table.
Over my long career(45 years) in almost every medical practice phase, one might say that I have learned a few things.
The vaccine hesitancy issues, contact tracing, multigenerational housing and getting the vaccine to underserved folk should not have come as a surprise
to those who decided for Black folk. If organizations had taken the time to have some Black folk at the table, these issues would have been discussed.

We are honored to be leading a coalition in #CharlestonSC with our #IGotIt_VACCINE initiative & multi-tiered community outreach campaign to build awareness & engagement to get #Covid19Vaccines in the arms of Black South Carolinians.

After we get Covid-19 vaccines in all arms, there will still be so much more that has to be done to close the gaps in healthcare in underserved communities. www.ClosingTheGapInHealthcare.org If you want to help, in any way, please contact Tony Clarke, Director of Community Outreach & Development.

ADoH SCIENTIFIC Teams With Closing the Gap in Healthcare To Launch Vaccine-Focused Public Health Partnership for Black Communities in the Carolinas

For 17 years, Closing The Gap In Healthcare, led by Dr. Thaddeus J. Bell, has had one purpose, to educate the people about health disparities within African American and underserved communities and to level the medical playing field for those whose voices have been muted due to socio-economic and geographically unavailable medical opportunities. Today we launch a very urgent initiative to save humanity during the #Covid19 #pandemic. “I Got It!” - three single words that will ring true in decreasing vaccine hesitancy in the African American community so that people understand the need to get their vaccine, and then get it. The “I Got It!” multi-media campaign will begin in the next few weeks. This Press Release describes the importance of this initiative.

Because we believe everyone deserves answers as to why they should get the vaccine, we are asking our community to post testimonials and pictures using #IGotIt_vaccine when they get their Covid19 vaccine so that your neighbors can see you have decided to become a solution to the problem.

If you care and want to help in any way with our campaign…please contact [email protected].

Check Dr Bell out on “Living Well with Dr. Bell”

01/22/2021

As expected, I am seeing the horrific outcomes of the COVID 19 in our community. I am amazed how entire families are being infected and wiped out especially since the Christmas and New Year holidays. Our community didn’t adhere to the guidelines as recommended. I am also seeing patients who physicians called “long hauler”. These patients are having major early health issues that were not present before they got the COVID(diabetes, kidney failure, chronic headaches and significant changes in cognitive skills).
I am concerned that the lack of mistrust regarding the vaccine as well as the shortage of vaccines that are likely to occur in our community will continue to devastate us. When the whole truth is finally told we learn that this pandemic was worst than we could have imagine.
Make every effort to get your elderly family members and sick relatives vaccinated. Stay on top of who has the vaccine an enroll immediately.
Talk to you Doctor if you have one, if not take my advice as well as others you trust and get the COVID vaccine.
Continue to wear your mast correctly, stay out of large crowds, and practice social distancing.
Finally, get you a Physician who will tell you the truth about your health issues. Follow the Dr. advice.
Looking forward to the virtual conference that I will be leading with my medical colleagues to the 6th District of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity this weekend on the COVID-19 Vaccine.

It has been about a week, and there has been no reported death due to taking the COVID 19 vaccine. Minor short live flu like symptoms have been reported.
