The Debut of Wine & Convos was a sold out success introducing the district to a new event and engaging 25 locals with the topic of Black Health. Attendees began the evening with a wine mixer and a fun instruction on how to properly taste wine by Founder Tanika Mangum, along with the wine story of Edelheiss Wine.
The room doors opened to reveal a long communal table with a full course seated dinner for guests. Surprised - would be an understatement. Based on the theme Black Health, the dinner included a health conscious selection including vegan options. But the real stars of the show were the featured panelists!
An impressive panel for a debut indeed. The panel included:
Tyecia Powell - Director of Operations, BikramYogaWorks Studio Social Media
Dr. Philip Johnson - CEO, P & G Behavioral Health Services Social Media
Andre Arthur - Ergonomist & CEO, iErgoFit Social Media
Dr. Baruch Ben-Yehudah - CEO & Founder, Everlasting Life Social Media
Ebony Toussaint - Ph.D Candidate University of Maryland Social Media
These panelists led a powerful conversation about health in the Black community. What is critical and things we must pay immediate attention to? How can we make an impact and how can we strive to be better in our own health pursuits?
