There is a crisis in black health. African Americans live six years less than the national average and the gap is widening. Dixon sees the extensive toll diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, addictions, stress, and other major disorders take on black American lives, and delineates the risk factors, prevention, and treatment of these life-threatening conditions.
