Center of Wellness for Urban Women, Inc
Center of Wellness for Urban Women, Inc (CWUW), founded in 2007, empowers women and their families to become proactive in their health by improving the mind, body, and spirit through education, advocacy, care, and prevention.
How do we plan to empower women and their families?:
Through neighborhood based programs, CWUW engages women in learning how to improve their health by recognizing and addressing social determinants of health which may eliminate health disparities for women and increase self-efficacy.
What are Social Determinants of Health?:
"Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks." - Healthy People 2020
To address the social determinants of health, we believe in empowering women to learn to maintain the 7 dimensions of Wellness (physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, social, and intellectual wellness) through various interventions and programs including both traditional and alternative therapies, gardening, nutrition counseling, cooking demonstrations, yoga, walking programs and more.
