Sisters Together

Sisters TogetherSisters Together: Move More, Eat Better is a national program of the Weight-control Information Network (WIN) designed to encourage black women ages 18 and older to maintain a healthy weight by becoming more physically active and eating healthier foods. 

To help the nearly 80 percent of black women with overweight or obesity, Sisters Together works with national and local newspapers, magazines, radio stations, schools, and organizations to raise awareness among black women about the health benefits of regular physical activity and healthy eating.

Sisters Together offers evidence-based, age-appropriate, and culturally relevant brochures that give black women, their families, and their friends practical tips to help them move more, eat better, and ultimately, improve their quality of life.
