Every person of color on a wellness journey has noticed something...

The lack of representation on fitness/wellness blogs, in advertising, in yoga classes, at wellness retreats and other fitness/wellness studios and events. It can be extremely alienating and paints a false picture of the importance of wellness in our community

In our community:

  1. The leading cause of death in African Americans is heart disease and 4.9 million African Americans aged 20 years or older have diagnosed diabetes, according to Centers for Disease Control
  2. African Americas have the highest rates of being overweight or obese compared to other groups in the U.S. About four out of five African American women are overweight or obese.
  3. In the United States, black women are 2 to 6 times more likely to die from complications of pregnancy than white women, depending on where they live.
  4. Rates of mental illnesses in African Americans are similar to those of the general population. However, African Americans often receive poorer quality of care and lack access to culturally competent care.
  5. Close to 111,000 African Americans were displaced from gentrifying neighborhoods in cities across the U.S. 

Our community needs a wellness movement now more than ever. The Black Wellness Community was created to address this lack of diversity in the wellness space. Our aim is to create content and events that celebrate people of color in wellness, highlights and provides access to local black-owned spaces and resources, shares knowledge from local experts and creates a sense of accountability for our wellness and our neighborhoods.
