Isuroon is a women-led, community-driven organization motivated by the belief that Somali women and girls deserve to be healthy and have a strong voice.
We are a linguistic and cultural bridge connecting women with wellness information, trusted health care providers, financial literacy, civic engagement and leadership.
For health care providers and policymakers, we are a partner to improve outcomes and decrease disparity through culturally competent training and research.
Our name, “Isuroon,” means “a woman who cares for herself.” With their courage and our resources, Somali women and girls in Minnesota can:
- Overcome obstacles such as language barriers, racism and religious intolerance
- Navigate a complex and unfamiliar health care system
- Become advocates for their own physical, social and financial wellness
