 7 Dimensions of Wellness

How do we plan to empower women and their families?

Through individual and community based programs, CWUW engages women in learning how to improve their health by recognizing and addressing social determinants of health which may eliminate health disparities for women and increase self-efficacy.  

What are Social Determinants of Health?

"Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks." - Healthy People 2020

To address the social determinants of health, we believe in empowering women to learn to maintain the 7 dimensions of Wellness through various interventions and programs including both traditional and alternative therapies, gardening, nutrition counseling, cooking demonstrations, yoga, walking programs and more.  Developing a CULTURE OF HEALTH and WELL-BEING is the goal.

Check out this note on our Facebook page to see why urban health is so important.
