Prime Time Sister Circle 

PRIME TIME SISTER CIRCLE

 

          Prime Time Sister Circle is an evidence-based, socially innovative intervention designed to improve the lifestyle of African American women between 40-75 in the areas of stress management, nutrition, fitness and prioritizing their own health.  It’s a facilitated, culturally relevant component support group for women – augmented with experts in the targeted areas.

          Between 2011 and 2019, PBWHA (in partnership with more than eight churches, and several other organizations) has graduated more than 300 women from the Prime Time Sister Circle program.

         Prime Time Sister Circle meets for two hours for 13 consecutive weeks in community based institutions and organizations. Preliminary clinical results in Philadelphia from September 2011 - June 2012 demonstrated a:

  • 20%  reduction in stress level of participants

  • 68% of the participants lost weight

  • more than 75% retention rate in participants

  • 17% decrease in hypertension from 40% at program start to 23% a program end

PBWHA partners with schools and community-based organizations to conduct workshops. 
Please contact us if you have any questions or wish to host workshops at your site.
