The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Chattanooga Chapter, Inc. will host its Sisterhood Symposium: Health is Wealth on Saturday, March 7, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Family Justice Center, 5705 Uptain Road.
The Sisterhood Symposium is a free health conference for women and young ladies. The symposium will provide a variety of health and wellness topics from metabolic syndrome to mental health that will be presented by local health experts. Health is one of the NCBW’s primary areas of focus in its advocacy efforts.
“The upcoming Sisterhood Symposium is an opportunity to gain knowledge about important health care topics from people of all backgrounds in a private intimate social setting," said Michalle Morris, NCBW's Health Committee chair. "There will be an interesting presentation about research, which is centered around the Tuskegee Airmen. More importantly, at the end of the presentations, there will be a round table discussion among the participants and health care professionals that will allow an opportunity to get feedback, ask questions, and provide new insight.
"After attending this symposium, we are trusting that each participant will have gained a new or fresh perspective on some of the health care topics, expand their knowledge, and garner ideas to find solutions to health disparities that disproportionally affect African Americans.” said Ms. Morris.
A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as door prizes given and other surprises for attendees. Due to limited seating, registration is required and may be done by calling 698-0029 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
