Conversations With Black Doctors

The Austin Black Physicians Association (ABPA) is excited to share important information to help improve the health of the Black community.

In light of recent activities, we all have an obligation to educate ourselves and share this with other people of color. Our goal is to decrease the health disparities that exist today in our population.

Please let us know if you have topics or questions you’d like us to address in the series.
