Who We Are and What We Do

The Black and Hispanic Nutrition Initiative is a community outreach program in collaboration with Health Advocates and Healthcare professionals. Richardson Consulting Group LLC has developed a platform to address the increasing level of disease in the Black and Hispanic communities. It also addresses the need of Financial Literacy in the Black and Hispanic communities.

This outreach program was established to bring awareness, education and mentorship solutions to serve the Black and Hispanic communities.

This initiative features some of the nation’s best Physicians, Nutritionist, Health coaches, Business mentors and Financial professionals.

Disparities in health and disease between various segments of the population, such as racial and ethnic groups, have increasingly become a major focus of public health research, practice, and policy. (Satia, 2009)

Diet is a key contributor to disparities in many chronic diseases and conditions. Therefore, in order to address and ultimately eliminate health disparities, it is important to understand how various factors, including diet and nutrition, contribute to these disparities. (Satia, 2009)

Cardiovascular Disease—The #1 killer of African Americans. Diabetes—3.2 million African Americans have diabetes, yet more than 33% do not know it. Vitamin D Deficiency—Low Vitamin D has been associated with several types of cancer as well as certain autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus.

Hispanics or Latinos are the largest racial/ethnic minority population in the US. Heart disease and cancer in Hispanics are the two leading causes of death, accounting for about 2 of 5 deaths.

Unfortunately, minorities such as the Black and the Hispanic communities are at higher risk of developing diseases such as, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure and heart disease. These diseases which in the past have been reserved for adults are now being contracted by children.

Bringing awareness to poor eating habits and which foods to avoid in addition to increasing the awareness of which foods will provide the proper nutrition is a preventive measure to decrease the levels of sickness and disease. Implementing educational workshops and also providing literature will serve an important role. The participation of the church leaders will play a significant role as well.

Mentorship is being provided by successful and qualified business owners that will teach entrepreneurship and assist in starting your

own small business.

Key Components:

  • Awareness/Education
