The conference will educate attendees about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. For the last two years, BWHWC has successfully outreached and served over 300 black women throughout Sacramento County by hosting the BWHWC conference. Through their annual conference, they have been able to provide a welcoming and supportive space where black women are able to engage with one another, focus on prioritizing their health. Last year they had over 150 participants who were able to increase their knowledge and awareness on cardiovascular health.  This year’s conference will focus on inclusivity in health and will explore the health needs of Black women from all backgrounds!! They are going to discuss topics such as mental health, sexual health, inclusivity in healthcare for diverse groups of Black women, and the negative impacts that racism and sexism has on health. Come join them for a day of healing, self-care, unity, and love, while they tackle important issues that impact health. For More Information: www.bwhwc.org
