IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Want to lose weight, feel great and get healthy?

Our Change Your Lifestyle. Change Your Life. program (CYL²) is for you! In the CYL² programs, lifestyle coaches teach women — and men — across the country how to eat differently and move more.

BWHI has joined with a coalition of women’s organizations to launch a new Care Women Deserve campaign to educate Black women on the range of women’s preventive services available at no out-of-pocket cost! Learn more about the services and the campaign here.

BWHI joins partnership to support outreach efforts for NIH’s All of Us Research Program – an effort to engage 1 million or more volunteers across the country to build one of the largest, most diverse datasets of its kind for health research.
