Michelle Moore Bell, founding president of The Wellness Group, said, “The mission of The Wellness Group is to educate, inform and empower women on breast cancer/breast health and a healthy lifestyle.  I am extremely passionate about this campaign because there are no known ways to prevent breast cancer; however, early detection is the key to breast cancer survival.” 

 

Also, Bell announced that the Annual Breast and Whole Health Breakfast Forum is set for Saturday, October 29, from 9 a.m. to Noon at the Proud Bird Events Center, Tuskegee Ballroom.  

 

The Wellness Group is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.  Their focus is to promote a healthy lifestyle to the under-resourced and under-served. Their goals are to reduce the mortality rate among African American women through health education and promote early detection with self-breast care, clinical breast examinations and mammography services.  

Moderator, Rhonda M. Smith, executive director of the California Black Health Network.
