COURTESY VILLAGE HEARTBEAT
Village HeartBeat is hosting Convening Our TRIBES, a virtual leadership platform to support women's wellness on Jan. 28 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Preventive health and wellness for women is the focus of a Charlotte-based virtual platform.


Village HeartBeat is sponsoring Convening Our Talented Resilient Intelligent Beautiful Encouraging Sisters, or TRIBES, on Jan. 28 with a virtual gathering from 7-8:30 p.m. Convening Our TRIBES is a leadership platform designed to address health concerns, share information, and identify resources to support women’s wellness.


The initiative is the latest outreach by Village HeartBeat, a collaboration between Mecklenburg County and community groups to reduce heart disease and obesity in the faith community. The program has built relationships with more than 60 faith-based organizations to reduce cardiovascular disease risk among Black residents, who are disproportionately impacted by nearly 20% compared to whites.


Registration is free at www.eventbrite.com/e/136044407485c. The first 25 to sign in will receive a gift.
