Through health education workshops, we provide current, relevant, and culturally competent content for Black women and girls of all ages. This includes a focus on nine health areas: heart disease, stroke and diabetes; breast and cervical cancer; mental health, premature delivery and maternal mortality, sickle cell disease, and HIV/AIDS and STI. Health education workshops are provided in person and virtually.
