Center for Black Women's Wellness Offers the 'Gift of Wellness' to Metro Atlantans

Innovative healthcare packages offer a gift option for the person who has everything --or nothing.

This Black Friday 2010, Atlanta healthcare nonprofit, The Center for Black Women’s Wellness (CBWW), launched a gift initiative that will last beyond the holidays. CBWW’s Gift of Wellness is a suite of three health services packaged as affordable presents whose benefits extend longer than electronics, clothes and jewelry. Available for purchase through January 30, 2011, The Gift of Wellness packages provide an innovative way to assist friends, loved ones and community members with a much-needed array of healthcare.

"The numbers of women in the metro Atlanta area without healthcare is staggering," says Jemea Dorsey, CEO of CBWW. "We’re partnering with the community this holiday season to make sure women have access to one of the greatest gifts there is: good health." These services are needed not just for the economically challenged, but also make a great option for small businesses who cannot afford to offer health insurance to their employees.

CBWW offers the services through their acclaimed Wellness Clinic, which provides affordable, quality, comprehensive healthcare including gynecological exams, preventive health screenings, and linkages to low cost/no cost mammograms. For Atlanta women residing in group homes, domestic violence and homeless shelters or young mothers this may be the only healthcare experience where the total woman is treated holistically.

Gift of Wellness Certificates are ideal for relatives, friends, church members and community members without health insurance or who cannot afford preventative care. A deeper solution to the "what to get" holiday dilemma, this "what to give" option is a way to give more than a material gift.
