KABC-TV, Southern California’s most-watched television station, presents a Women’s History Month one-hour town hall, “Women’s Health,” addressing racial and ethnic health disparities impacting women of color airing Thursday, March 25 (4:30 p.m. PDT). The event will be hosted by ABC7 Eyewitness News anchors David Ono and Ellen Leyva, who will present a panel of experts to answer viewers’ questions.

Studies show that women of color have worse health outcomes than white women, and nearly twice as many women of color describe themselves as being in fair or poor health. The panel of experts will address the importance of self-care specifically for women, access to health care, and how diseases and conditions that include diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and obesity impact communities of color.

Panelists include the following:

  • Cynthia E. Muñoz, Ph.D., MPH psychologist, American Diabetes Association
  • Tracie Kimbrough, cancer survivor and “Reach to Recovery” volunteer, American Cancer Society
  • Dr. Karol Watson, cardiologist at UCLA Health, volunteer expert for the American Heart Association 
  • Dr. Sonal Patel, Allergy & Immunology, Allergy and Internal Medicine/Pediatrics, American Lung Association

The virtual town hall will air on ABC7 and viewers can stream it live on, ABC7 Los Angeles app, and ABC7 Los Angeles connected TV apps for Amazon FireTVAndroid TVApple TV and Roku. A recording of the virtual town hall will also be available at and ABC7’s connected TV apps following the live stream.
