In celebration of National Women’s Health Month, the Ruby Lee Prevo Foundation presented the “I AM BETTER THAN THAT” Women’s Wellness and Empowerment Conference on Saturday May 18, 2013 at the Double Tree Hotel in Birmingham.
This conference raised awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS among women and the importance of screening and accessing treatment for HIV. Also, the conference centered around holistic health focusing on the well-being of women. The program was designed with the goal of motivating women to move beyond the constraints of their past, to more aggressively eliminate toxic and emotionally disabling circumstances and situations that are crippling to their growth, and to actively address those behaviors that inhibit their physical, mental, social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual well-being.
The conference was sponsored by Ruby Lee Prevo Foundation, Gilead Sciences, Ifediba Law Group, Ty Boone Enterprises, Dr. Horace Huntley –Chief of Staff for Commissioner George Bowman and Aletheia House.
