“The collaboration between our substance use disorder treatment programs and Women’s Health Specialists is crucial to the health and education of persons in the early stages of recovery. Addressing these issues is vital to improving health and addressing personal responsibility in their recovery”
— Marjeanne Stone, Executive Director, Empire Recovery
Women's Health Specialists is dedicated to working with women and men in our own communities to further social justice and equality, reproductive rights and accessibility to health care. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for women’s health issues to be absent from the agenda at community, statewide, national and international meetings. As a result, the voices of rural and low-income women are seldom heard. WHS participates on a local, statewide, national, and international level to promote women’s health issues and protect women’s reproductive rights.
Community Partners Include:
- NorCal AIDS Cycle
- Local Colleges
- Black Women for Wellness
- Many More!
Staff, board members, and volunteers frequently attend conferences and events to further advance the status of women and address social inequalities in our local communities and beyond. Women's Health Specialists' mission not only guides us in our local community work, but in a broader vision of community that seeks equality extending beyond state lines and international borders.
