Improve the Health and Wellness of African Women
Isuroon is seeking OB-GYN healthcare professionals to help us evaluate the healthcare knowledge and practices surrounding African women. Isuroon seeks to attract a total of 5,000 survey responders nationwide to evaluate a full-spectrum of OB-GYN healthcare services including mental and physical health services and referrals. The evaluation is designed to inform the healthcare field, African communities, and the general public regarding the pressing challenge of ensuring effective OB-GYN care for African women. This research study is funded by a Community Innovation Grant provided by the Bush Foundation.
Minnesota-area OBG-GYN healthcare professionals and professionals outside of Minnesota are welcomed to take the survey. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes. Isuroon thanks you for your support of the health and well-being of African women!
WE EMPOWER WOMEN
Isuroon is a grassroots organization working for the health and connectedness of Somali women and girls so they and their families can thrive in Minnesota and globally. With us, women and girls build their own health and wellness, economic self-sufficiency, community engagement and leadership.
WE ARE WHO WE SERVE
Our nonprofit grew out of the Twin Cities’ Somali community and is led by the very women we serve. Listening drives our priorities — in meetings, collaborations with organizations of faith, community-based participatory research, and face-to-face conversations. We’ve earned our reputation of trust by empowering Somali women to improve their lives.
WE BUILD CULTURAL BRIDGES
Isuroon partners with health care professionals to promote wellness and decrease health disparities. For policymakers and the broader Minnesota community, we are the go-to source for data and cultural competence on a wide range of issues affecting women and children of Somali descent.
