Our Mission Is To Improve The Health Of Women of Color ThroughEducation, Engagement & Empowerment
The overall health of American women has improved over the past few decades, but not all women have benefitted equally.
Many women of color continue to lag behind white women in a number of areas, including quality of care, access to care, timeliness, and outcomes. Although there have been improvements in women of color's health, we still have a lot of progress to make.
The non-profit furthers its health impact on women and girls of color by partnering with Black Girl Health, LLC for is annual National Kickstart Health & Wellness Program; which includes an entire day of interactive workshops by renown health experts, doctors, health screenings, and fitness trainers to motivate women to take control of their health and give them resources to make informed decisions.

The BGH Clinic is a service provided by the Black Girl Health Foundation, Inc to Women of Color in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Charles County, and Prince George’s County in Maryland. We have a core belief that, in addition to remission of psychiatric symptoms, quality of life for our clients must improve.
