The Intersection of Racism and Health in Black Women

Black Women are on the front lines protecting ourselves, our families, and communities. Black women delivered in the United States an historic presidential election and is now being called on to protect our democracy. These battles come with unthinkable casualties. There is a much greater battle Black Women of all ages are facing throughout the Diaspora, the Caribbean, and the Continent of Africa. It is the battle of Well-Being and Optimal Health. Healthcare disparities for Black women across the globe are at a crisis level and together we have the critical answers.

Come and add your voice to the voices of women determined to change the outcome for women’s health.
