    This website was launched on July 26, 2015. The purpose of the website is to disseminate information that will be helpful for anyone who needs the tools for healthy living. Its primary mission is to reduce health disparity through educating and empowering women. Our family continues to grow and it is wonderful to know that our members come from a diverse background – ethnicity, ages, socioeconomic status, countries, etc. and yes, we do have men.

    Twenty-one blogs have been posted. The five most popular blogs were:

    UTERINE FIBROIDS – WHAT IS THERE TO KNOW? – Uterine fibroids are the most common solid pelvic tumors affecting women. Over 70% of women will be diagnosed by the time they turn 50. There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the management of uterine fibroids.

    WHAT IS YOUR FAMILY HISTORY?  – Knowing your family history is a powerful tool in preventing or delaying the onset of certain diseases.

    MAKE THE SCALE YOUR BEST FRIEND – When it comes to weight, think of success as not necessarily losing weight, but as not gaining weight. One of the strategies to weight management is changing your relationship with the scale.

    WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER? – There are many people walking around with diseases they do not know they have. For example, 1 in 5 adults with high blood pressure do not know they have high blood pressure. When high blood pressure is not treated, it can lead to complications that can be prevented.

    WORK STRESS AND THE FOUR AGREEMENTS – This was based on the book titled The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.  By knowing these four agreements, you can reduce stress at work

    The blog that had the most comments was LESSON LEARNED FROM MY TRIP YO NIGERIA. I had the opportunity to be wih a group of women who belonged to ‘Osita di nma’ which means it will start to be good from today.

    I am excited about the New Year. We will continue to be true to our purpose. This website is for us. Please share the information and  forward the link to those you believe would benefit.  If there are particular health issues you want addressed that will be useful to our family, please feel free to contact me at, You can also follow me on twitter @ngoziosuagwumd.

    May the New Year bring you peace, love, happiness and good health.

    Happy New Year!

      I am interested in learning more about diabetic foot pain; how to recognize it and what to do if it exists.

    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.
