On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Michelle Greene Rhodes, CEO at Michelle Rhodes Media LLC, author and editor-in-chief of The Color of Wellness Magazine.

According to American Action Forum, recent estimates attribute 10% to 20% of health outcomes to medical care, 30% to genetics, 40% to 50% to behavior, and 20% to the social and physical environment.

Rhodes talks about why she started the publication; the lack of health literacy and the deficiency of wellness principles in the African-American community; giving nurses a platform to address issues in their communities; and the COVID-19 pandemic.

John L. Hanson is the producer and host of the nationally syndicated radio series In Black America. It’s heard on home station KUT at 10 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 a.m. Sundays — and weekly on close to 20 stations across the country. The weekly podcast of IBA, the only nationally broadcast Black-oriented public affairs radio program, is one of KUT’s most popular podcasts.
