Where would we be without the Black Women's Health Imperative? There is no louder, stronger, more supportive advocate for the well-being of black women and girls. Because of the imperative, our communities and policymakers know our health issues matter.

I have been teaching ever since to thousands. i'm also on a Medical Practice diabetes teaching Advisory Council having benefited from my association with this organization. And I'm in awe of their advocacy efforts on the hill & ongoing educational teleconferencing that I take to congregants, i have a wide black audience .........Rev. Geraldine Pemberton
