There is no other site solely dedicated to achieving optimal health for Black women. Understanding that our issues are unique and complex, I am so happy to know that I have an advocate in the Imperative: fighting for us in the halls of Congress, engaging young women in my community and working with providers to ensure access to the quality care we so deserve.

The Black Women's Health Imperative has provided me with Leadership as well as Self-Help Prevention Education Training and Diabetes Prevention and Self Management Training. The leadership of these dedicated women has inspired me to be a better Community Leader and to keep my torch burning. The training I received has expanded my tools and enhanced my group facilitation skills. Their self help methodology for wellness is helping many women change their lives and their world. I am so impressed that I will support their efforts in any way that I can.

The Black Women's Health Imperative is one of the best non-profits around for many reasons. I feel honored to be able to spread their message here in my state of New Jersey. They do amazing work by helping women of color with their health, and I cannot want to tell everyone to purchase "Health First" which is one of the best reads around. I feel dedicated and inspired with this organization to continue to keep up the great work.
