Our weekly sessions involve our Black GPs and Senior Consultants offering a free session on health-related issues that affect our black community, such as: high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity etc. CAHN aims to eradicate health inequalities within a generation for Caribbean & African people.
We look forward each week to members of the community joining us, as we talk about different these health issues, which are prevalent in the black community. We encourage people to become more knowledgeable from the correct sources- the health professionals.

Our Collective Community Response Meeting (CCRM) are fortnightly networking meetings opened to all to engage with our community.
Our CCRM meetings offer the opportunity for local, Black-led community groups and organisations; Statutory organisations working on inclusion; and even those planning community consultations and looking to have participants from the Caribbean & African community coming together to network.
Our weekly Healthy Hearts sessions involve our Black Nutritionists and Physical instructors offering a free session, with the first 30 minutes focused on Health talks about diet and lifestyle choices, and the last 30 minutes involving physical activity, such as a cardio-workout routine, demonstrated by a physical instructor.
We look forward each week to members of the community joining us, as we talk about diverse ways to enhance our health, and discuss health topics that impact our community, some of which include sugar intake, portion sizes of food, exercise and mental health, what is appropriate for breakfast, the impact of a poor diet and more. CAHN has discovered that starting conversations about health and diet is needed to be spoken of in the Black community.
