Choose to Live
Choose to Live: Sisters Strong Together is sponsored by the African American Initiatives. This program is designed to help African-American women take charge of their health. We talk about why, as African-American women, sometimes don't take care of ourselves. This program will help us learn ways to take care of ourselves, which in the end will help our families, friends, our co-workers and our community. The program will focus on what we can do to take charge of our health and our own lives, and then take better care of others.
Our main message for the workshop is summed up in the word sisters:
S means start now!
I reminds us to ID or identify ways to exercise
S is for staying focused
T means take the pledge
E is for educating ourselves
R means rally your support group
S is for stop diabetes
