The Juliette Health Organization (JHO) will lead the way of Black women consciously choosing to be healthier and thrive. We will no longer suffer from diseases that are preventable. We will invest in ourselves and we will invest in each other. The JHO is in honor of my grandmother, Juliette who passed away at the age of 62. My grandma suffered from many chronic illnesses including hypertension, diabetes, renal failure and heart disease. Studies have shown that women of color are disproportionately more likely, than white women, to receive a lower quality of health care even when they have the same insurance status and the same health issues.
The JHO will provide comprehensive health education and advocacyto women of color. I am so excited and I would be thrilled if all of you would follow this blog and share it with others!
