Health experts discuss disparities in Albany

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Health experts met at Albany State University, Wednesday afternoon, to talk about ways to meet the area's health challenges.

Representatives from different health organizations presented information about their work in reducing health disparities in Albany.

Speakers discussed health problems such as obesity, cancer and teen pregnancy.

ASU's health disparities research community organizers will take the information learned today and apply it to their research.

"If we do research into health disparities, we'll hopefully be able to find out why they exist in the first place and then start to figure out how to resolve them," said organizer Judith Rosenbaum.

Health representatives and concerned community members are invited to continue the discussion Thursday at noon in the ACAD building on the ASU campus.
