Texas Black Women’s Health Initiative 10 Year Anniversary Virtual Conference
Join us on November 10th for the Texas Black Women’s Health Initiative 10 Year Anniversary Virtual Conference! This conference will commemorate 10 years of educating people and working to reduce stigma and the disparity of HIV/AIDS among Black identified women in Texas.
Who we are?
Texas Black Women’s Health Initiative (TxBWHI) is a collective, regionally-located team created to mobilize with a focus on HIV education, prevention, and care retention by influencing: policy, systems, programs, projects, cultures, and practices to reduce HIV-related disparities in communities of Black women.
What is the Texas Black Women’s Health Initiative (TxBWHI)?
It is a unique initiative supporting Black-identified women and their communities from a woman’s perspective by elevating their power of visibility, addressing stigma and increasing wholeness for a healthier life. We accomplish our goals through many unique initiatives such as tea parties, hair and health shows and “rock the red carpet” events, as well as leadership development projects; engaging students at historically black colleges and universities to build capacity for peer-to-peer education and faith-based outreach and education.
Why should I attend the conference?
Knowledge is Power! This conference is for anyone wanting to learn about TxBWHI initiatives and join us as we continue to be intentional about building on current knowledge to support Black women, Trans women, their families, and their communities in reducing health disparities.
