    National Public Health Week 2023: Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health, April 3-9, 2023

    Join the Maryland Public Health Association as we celebrate National Public Health Week 2023, April 3-9!

    This year's theme is "Centering and Celebrating Cultures in Health". Our cultures have always shaped our health. We learn from the communities we're born in and that we build together. For this NPHW, we look to community leaders as our health leaders. We celebrate the unique and joyful ways different cultures focus on health. And we look to how we can learn from each other, with humility and openness.

    Toxic - A Black Woman's Story 2.png

    Join us at 7pm to watch the short film Toxic, followed by discussion led by Dr. Cheryl Johnson, MD.

    RSVP using the link below!



    Racism. Toxic stress. Birth outcomes.

    How are these things intertwined? The short film, Toxic: A Black Woman's Story, seeks to explore that question...

    Peer into the world of the film’s lead protagonist, Nina. An elite lawyer, loyal wife, and loving mother of a teen boy, Nina is navigating life (and a pregnancy) to the best of her ability. But sometimes the forces on a woman - especially a black woman - can be too much to bear.

    In this highly anticipated short film, the viewer is invited on a journey of perspective transformation. Follow Nina in this day-in-the-life drama, and see the world through the eyes of a successful black woman who must navigate an unjust world while trying to protect the world she has created for herself and her family.
