Dr. Nekeshia Hammond
Health and Wellness Expert
Health is a state of being and refers to the physical, mental, and social well-being. Wellness is the state of living a healthy lifestyle. BWE cares about the health and wellness of all people, in particular, our black women.
If is a fact, that COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted African Americans more than any other race. Statics state that black women are among the hardest hit by the coronavirus unemployment crisis. In addition, many women of color work in jobs deemed essential, so they can be at higher risk of getting sick; consider that mothers who work in industries on the frontline are more likely to be women of color.
BWE is all about educating and equipping our black women with the knowledge and tools to live healthy and whole lives.
