Wins For Kansas: Sistahs Can We Talk

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

"Sistahs Can We Talk" is an organization on a mission to empower women to take charge of their health, especially when that task seems out of reach. 

"At the end of the day, if I don't have any money, then I don't have insurance, I don't have resources...how do I bring those resources closer to you, free for you, or discount it for you?" said organization founder and president Michelle Vann.

Encouraging a healthy mind, body, and spirit, the organization has honed on some key issues.

"We have really gone in and look at what our community needs, and when I say our community I mean the African American and Hispanic community," said Vann.

 "One of the things we look at is infant mortality, we look at heart disease, we look at breast cancer, and how do we get more resources into those neighborhoods."

Helping to bring resources in directly, when some might not otherwise have access.

"So often we ask people to leave the community and go to other places. But if I don't have a car, or don't any money to buy a bus ticket, how am I going to get there? So that's kinda what we do, we bring that information right into the neighborhood."

To help in their effort KAKE TV and our partners, Devaughn James Injury Lawyers, have chosen "Sistahs Can We Talk" as this week's Wins For Kansas.
