“After years of going to doctors who really didn’t care about me and receiving treatments that never fully worked, I finally found the medical care I needed through the Center for Black Women’s Wellness. Their genuine love, support and continuous follow-up helped me to lower my high blood pressure and high cholesterol, lose more than 25 pounds, and establish a healthy lifestyle to keep me active in my child care business– All this without health insurance!” – Deborah Gresham, CBWW Client
