The Southeast Queens Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be collaborating with executive producer Oprah Winfrey and the Smithsonian Channel to host a screening of Oprah Winfrey's documentary on health disparities, The Color of Care.--
The SEQCOC walked right into this amazing opportunity when president of the chamber, Dr Roxanne 'Simone' Lord Marcelle, a Doctor of Naturopathy, discovered just how bad the health disparities and injustices are in South Jamaica. When I moved Mother Earth Juice Bar Café from Metropolitan Avenue in Kew Gardens to Sutphin Blvd in Jamaica, I noticed a monumental difference in the quality of health in patrons from the two diverse communities. Approximately 1 in 5 people that came in the old location in Kew Gardens were suffering from ailments such as hypertension compared to a whopping 1 in 50 predominantly African-Americans that come into Mother Earth on Sutphin Blvd in South Jamaica.
Dr Lord and a volunteer reached out to Oprah Winfrey for help dealing with this health crisis in people of color. They were surprised and delighted to get a response. A great opportunity to host a screening for Oprah Winfrey's newly released documentary on racial injustices as it relates to healthcare, The Color of Care.
The documentary will be screened virtually on August 10, 2022 from 6:30 to 9 pm, with three VIP watch parties scheduled so far. St John's University Theatre with Destiny University hosted by Dr. Stacie N.C. Grant; Luxe Library with hostess Delicia Davis and Mother Earth Juice Bar Café 115-42 Sutphin Blvd, Jamaica Queens.
In addition, as a bonus, all guests that rsvp for the Oprah documentary will have an opportunity to meditate in person at a day of healing event organized hosted by Queens Borough President Donovan Richards with the world-renowned healer, Deepak Chopra and other healers.
RSVP at www.seqcoc.org to watch this life changing documentary together as a community.
