A groundbreaking, comprehensive, much-needed health reference book to help Black women live healthy, long, and strong in the 21st century

For far too long, Black women have suffered worse health-care outcomes than other women, and a change is overdue. With Black Women’s Wellness, award-winning obstetrician-gynecologist Dr. Melody T. McCloud has written an indispensable and empowering guide to help Black women lead happier, healthier lives.

Despite technological advances, insurance, education, and medical access, Black women still carry the highest incidence of and worst prognosis for many conditions—such as cancer, heart disease, and maternal mortality. Additionally, they face ongoing and often-overlooked psycho-social factors—from negative media stereotypes to general racism—that adversely affect their physical well-being.

With personal anecdotes and a wealth of knowledge, Dr. McCloud addresses all of these unique issues and more, so you can take charge of your health as never before—including navigating and advocating for yourself within the medical system.

Written in an easy-to-understand, conversational tone, Black Women’s Wellness is filled with professional medical advice, sexology, sociology, psychology, dashes of pop culture, and doses of personal responsibility. A groundbreaking resource for Black women of all ages, this book encourages you to reach high, empower yourself with knowledge, and not let the legacy of dismal statistics deter your successful journey to health and happiness.
