A Commitment Maker to the Clinton Health Matters Initiative

Food, Faith and Family  - Strategic Partner with the Extraordinary Living Project

Our goal is to support African American women to sustain Extraordinary Living for their entire lives through healed emotions, a nourished, fit body and healthy mindset. Through this new way of living, the women will affect their communities, families and generations to come in significant and powerful ways.

The Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) works to improve the health and well-being of all people by activating individuals, communities, and organizations to make meaningful contributions to the health of others. The goals of CHMI are to reduce the prevalence of preventable health outcomes, close health inequity and disparity gaps, and reduce health care costs by improving access to key contributors to health for all people.”
