First ladies combat health issues with ministries, screenings and events

With March being Women’s History Month, California Black Media and Los Angeles Focus collaborated to feature the work of Los Angeles-based first ladies that focus on health outreach ministries and their communities.
During a gathering, 13 preachers’ wives from predominately African-American Los Angeles-area churches discussed fashion, what it means to be a church leader, and other topics pertaining to being the first lady. Many said it was important for them to have a leadership role in tackling health challenges that exist in their congregations, because they want church goers to be free of ailments like cancer, diabetes, and mental health calamities.
