August 6th, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The 1st Annual Sacramento Black Women’s Health and Wellness Conference (SBWHWC) will take place at the University of California, Davis-Education Building.

A Healthier We!” The purpose of this conference is to focus on reducing health disparities that disproportionately affect Black women by raising awareness about mental and physical health. The conference will educate attendees about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The vision for this conference was birthed by the Encouraging Life Organization (ELO) and the Juliette Health Organization (JHO) whose founders, Jessica Brown and Chioko Grevious, are committed to the overall health and well-being of Black women. Together they have extensive experience in providing leadership to underserved communities.

This year’s conference will aim to address these specific health disparities and engage a community to reach towards prevention. There will be a dynamic keynote speaker, informative workshops, invigorating yoga demonstrations, plus breakfast and lunch will be included. Cost is $25. SBWHWC.org
