    The Pandemic, Resiliency, and Advocating for Women's Health

Their health education classes are unique because they include preventative curriculum-based classes that teach resiliency skills and relate those skills to current health risks. Due to COVID-19, The Women’s Fund has pivoted to offer all its programs and classes online, at no cost to the public. I think now more than ever, it’s important to have discussions about health and resiliency especially among young girls. Parents can turn to The Women’s Fund for free tools and resources with a goal that girls learn skills needed to be advocates for their health, make healthy behavior choices, and develop resiliency. Andrea Watkins is the Program Supervisor of the Women's Fund and tells us all about how they have expanded their programming nationwide, growing resilience in women and young girls, and the importance of maintaining relationships during this time of distance and isolation.
