About This Calendar

Having Faith in Health

For 30 years, Aetna has celebrated African American history through the publication of its African American History Calendar. Over the last decade, we have explored in our calendars diverse health care topics aligningwith our own corporate mission and purpose.

We continue on that journey and rejoice this milestone with great faith. We are pleased to honor individuals and organizations that are moving health and wellness messages to the forefront. They are doing this important work by addressing one of the most powerful audiences in the world – the faith community.

This calendar celebrates remarkable individuals who have dedicated their lives to inspiring and empowering others to spend time taking care of their minds, bodies and spirit.

Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and Hinduism … while the religious beliefs among the individuals profiled vary, there is one common desire — to eliminate health disparities in the African American community. They each recognize the influence faith leaders have in making that change happen.

We have traveled to large and small churches, a mosque, a fire department, and a college campus to find out how having belief and faith can make a world of difference in the health of so many. Aetna is pleased to present its 30th annual African American History Calendar, celebrating the healthful blessings that have the power to inspire us all.
