The story of Black women in America is one of triumph and grace, even with odds stacked high against them. Health First! The Black Woman's Wellness Guide provides you with a comprehensive guide to your #1 resource: yourself.

Today, as Black women face an unprecedented health crisis, denial and self-neglect are no longer viable options. This groundbreaking volume is rooted in the pioneering work of the Black Women's Health Imperative, the nation's only nonprofit organization devoted to advancing the health and wellness of Black women and girls. It offers a core health philosophy--too long denied Black women--based on putting your health first.

Health First! explores Black women's most critical health challenges, connecting the dots through honest discussions with experts and the uncensored stories of real women--from adolescence through elderhood. The focus is on prevention and awareness, across generations and circumstances--from candid conversations about reproductive health and HIV/AIDS to frank explorations of Black women's Top 10 Health Risks, including cancer, obesity, and violence.

No matter what your age or health status, this unprecedented health reference will become a trusted ally as you seek accessible and relevant information to help you navigate your most pressing health needs. In an age of uncertainty, it's time to take control and truly discover the vitality, power, and joy that can be yours when you learn how to put your health first.
