    Celebrating Another Year

    Celebrating Another Year

    On July 26, 2015, I embarked on this venture, launching this website. We are eight years old, and this is possible because of you. You are indeed the fuel that keeps me going. It is great to hear that some nuggets of information on this site positively impacted someone’s life. Accurate information is essential to empower us to make the best health decisions. We all understand when we take care of ourselves, we can take care of those who hold our affection.

    Each year, I read the original posting dated July 26, 2015. This website was developed because there existed a gap in health care that transcended socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and education and was purely based on the color of one’s skin. I would love to say that the gap no longer exists, but that will be incorrect. Some progress is being made. There is recognition by more and more people that there is a gap.

    Regarding solutions, it will require a multipronged approach, with some working on changing policies and others working from the ground up. With this website, I decided to work with individuals. We will reduce health disparity through educating and empowering women.

    It has been eight years since the website’s launch, and it needs an update. I have engaged with TrustedTeams to review and improve the website. If you have suggestions or want to see a change, I would like to hear from you by August 18, 2023. Just send me an email at Your voice matters.

    As we do every six months, I provide you with the top five read blogs over the past six months. You can reread it or share it with your network:

    5. Sharing Information on Non-Sugar Sweeteners and Ultra-Processed Foods – I am thrilled this made the list. This blog reviews the World Health Organization’s advice on using Non-Sugar Sweeteners. The blog also discussed ways to reduce Ultra-processed foods in our diet.

    4. Tori Bowie –What must we do? Tori Bowie is the Olympian who died at 32 due to eclampsia. This blog outlines the four steps black women should take to protect themselves when pregnant.

    3. He is Loved – Around Father’s Day, we devote an entire blog to ways to protect the men in our lives. The blogs focused on men’s health are always the top-read blog. I am convinced this blog is popular because we realize taking care of the men in our lives positively impacts our lives.

    2. A Different Lens – The Declaration of Independence is considered the birth certificate of the United States. This blog reminds us of the sacrifices made by indigenous and enslaved people to make America.

    1. I Understand – I share my struggle with weight gain as I get older.

    Thank you again for your support of this website. Our mission is to reduce health disparity through educating and empowering women. This is how we keep our sisters alive and healthy.

    Secure Your Copy of Letters to My Sisters by Dr. Ngozi Osuagwu.

    The book discusses common gynecological and women’s health issues in a series of witty and entertaining letters. These letters, all educational, offer suggestions on what approaches to take in tackling the medical problems that typically bring women to an ob/gynecologist. The letters are spiced with art, a poem and quotes. Although its emphasis is on gynecology and women’s health, it touches on some other medical issues that make women visit their doctors.

    The second half of the book briefly discusses the most common gynecological conditions and also provides an overview of sexually transmitted infections. A list of annotated websites dealing with the different topics in the book is provided for the reader who wants to pursue each subject in depth.
