Protect Your Crown: your mind, and your mental health

July 30 @ 10:30 am - 3:30 pm

In recognition of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, we invite you to join Queens Village Dayton for our Protect Your Crown event.

During this event, we will provide wellness resources to address mental health for Black women in our community. Participants will have the opportunity to hear a keynote address from Manicka Thomas and the ability to attend two of the following sessions of their choice:

  1. Fitness Instruction by Evolv U Fit Academy.
  2. Yoga by Jennifer Turpin Stanfield.
  3. Finance Management Session by Ivy Glover.

The first 60 participants to register will have the opportunity to attend a paint party by Candace Plus Paint from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm.

Premier Health will provide 16 free biometric screening panels to the first 16 participants to register for this service. A schedule will be provided to the selected individuals in the order of event registration at the Protect Your Crown Event.

The biometric screening includes blood pressure and a non-fasting fingerstick test to measure the following:

  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL cholesterol
  • Blood glucose
  • Hemoglobin A1C

Those not registered for the paint party can network and connect with each other and mingle with the vendors.

You will not want to miss this event, registration is required.

Queens Village Dayton is a supportive community gathering of powerful Black women who come together to rest, relax, re-power, and take care of ourselves and each other.

In our focus on improving health outcomes for Black women, we strive to create safe, intimate spaces for Black women and one of the ways we do that is by creating opportunities just for them.

We encourage allies to stay connected to the Village and be aware of future opportunities to plug in with our E1R1 Task Force events.
