Who We Are:
Welcome to Black Health HQ, led by a researcher on a mission, this site is dedicated to the personal development of Black health & prosperity.
We know you’ve been targeted and mistreated.
So have we.
We also know this is bad for your health. That’s why we’ve created this.
Black Health HQ offers digestible research-laden content aimed at inspiring and promoting three primary dimensions: Physical, Financial, & Mental health for Black folks.
We provide clear solutions and products for your health, wealth and fitness goals.
Physical Health– We are committed to providing research-based evidence to help you achieve your maximum physical health goals. This content addresses plant-based nutrition & physical training.
Financial Health– We believe that Financial Health has tremendous impacts on our quality of life. We are committed to bringing you content that helps you achieve fiscal fitness, including the best ways to use your available capital to grow wealth.
Mental Health– We believe that Mental illness is a silent killer and, for Black folks, is tied to racism. We seek to address mental, psychological/emotional well-being with effective clinically tested practices that help us enjoy being alive regardless of external circumstances.
We believe each of us can be a powerful nucleus that, like a healthy cell, radiates energy to others, sustaining an enduring vitality. We are about Living. We are about Loving. We are about being powerful Black people, healing the World through quality content and the sheer joy of Being.
I’m Shawn Smith, the Founder of Black Health HQ. Holding dual Master’s degrees in the Social Sciences, I have researched the role of oppression on health outcomes in the Black community. As an educator, I have dedicated myself to the human mission and the pursuit of practical health solutions for Black people.
I have applied my skills as a social science researcher and scholar to learn, understand and share the tools of Black Health.
My job is to analyze the best Nutrition, Psychology & Business data in order to bring you the most impactful health-content possible.
I took up the mission of providing user-friendly health solutions as a form of resistance against oppressive, institutional conditions facing Black people around the world.
I envisioned a platform that could enhance development for anyone pursuing their health and wholeness goals. I am committed to healing the world with Black Excellence.
Each of us can play a part. Join us in this mission.
