After Greg Hall, M.D. started volunteering in his community, he was tapped by the Governor's office to join the Ohio Committee on Minority Health. That was the beginning of his growing expertise on the health disparities between African-Americans and other racial groups. Reading research study after research study, he noticed a correlation between the nutritional deficits most common among African-Americans and the diseases that have the most devastating impacts on Black life expectancy. His research lead to the creation of Sequence Multi-Vitamins specifically designed to enhance African-American health.
His book, Patient-Centered Care for African-Americans is a trailblazer in providing guidance to doctors, medical school students and hospital residents. A second edition is already being prepared. Most recently, Dr. Hall was named Medical Director of University Hospital's Cutler Center for Men and will oversee a multidisciplinary approach to improving all men's health. Dr. Hall and his wife Melanie have three adult children.
He drops a lot of great knowledge and humor throughout our conversation. Make sure you subscribe to the 365 Brothers YouTube Channel. Excerpts that didn't make it into the official episode will drop later this week.
