Protectors Insurance Healthcare, an African American insurance company with over 40 years of experience based in Houston Texas, recently partnered with Humana Insurance a Fortune 100 company with a nearly 50-years of history in the health industry.
In the African American community heart disease, diabetics, cancer, and stroke are the top killers. Did you know that every 11 seconds, someone turns 65 years of age in America? Furthermore, did you know that African American senior citizens are the unhealthiest group in the Nation. Did you know that we can do something to stop this escalating statistic, improve our health, and preserve our living black history?
We perish due to our lack of knowledge. This is why Protectors Healthcare Insurance / Humana Insurance will be touring 40 cities within 18 months. The question becomes what better time than now to empower and educate our African American senior citizens with the knowledge of these different programs that are in place to give our senior citizens a better equality of life.
