The NCMS has partnered with Radio One affiliate stations to sponsor the annual “Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day.”

The annual event was started in 2001 and is held every third Tuesday in September.

Today Radio One’s affiliate stations in the triangle area — WQOK 97.5, WFXC 107.1 and 104.3, and WNNL 103.9 — are promoting routine health screenings and annual physical examinations among African Americans and other ethnic minority groups who have disproportionately high rates of chronic health conditions.

Listen all day to hear appeals by your fellow NCMS members.
