Before Ferguson brought to light racial inequalities in St. Louis, there was a research effort—and organization—working to improve the health of all people by eliminating racial inequities in the St. Louis region.

For the Sake of All's project director and principal investigator, Dr. Jason Purnell, will sit down with Matt Ehlman of The Numad Group for our December Morning Fill Up on Thursday, December 14 at 7am at The Garage in Rapid CIty. Tickets are available now. It's free thanks to co-sponsorship by The Numad Group and The Bush Foundation.

The organization's landmark report, "A Report on the Health and Well-Being of African Americans in St. Louis—And Why It Matters for Everyone," is the culmination of research from Washington University in St. Louis and Saint Louis University that explored how socioeconomic and sociocultural factors influence health behaviors and health outcomes and on mobilizing community action to address the social determinants of health.
