Healthy Heritage Lifestyle was started by Benita Perkins and Lisa Cureton, who have both been involved in healthy lifestyle programming for the past several years. They came together after realizing that multicultural women are at a cross roads of wanting to improve their health, and searching for ways to do this. They understand the need to provide "how to" information for and to these women to improve their lives and reduce illness and disease through better lifestyle habits. The focus is on providing realistic answers to the tasks of improving healthy eating habits and activities, as a means for reducing health disparities in multicultural communities. The ultimate goal is to begin a heritage of health in these communities, that will be passed down through generations.
