Encouraging Health-Affirming Behaviors Through Education
We educate and empower Black women and girls to adopt daily active, health-affirming thoughts and behaviors. We also educate policy makers about conditions that affect our health. We will continue to expand our existing work training Black women and girls on using a social determinants of health framework, which focuses on how race, gender, income, the environment, among others, influence our health status and the need for culturally responsive, gender sensitive and community-based care to improve our health and wellness outcomes.
