KINGSTON, RI – Here at Urban Health Watch, collaborations and partnerships are key. That’s why it’s so exciting to be partnering with She Shines, a magazine published by YWCA Northern Rhode Island. For the third year in a row, She Shines will be releasing a special, Minority Health edition of the magazine, and you might be familiar with the Guest Editor they worked with this year and in previous ones.

The cry for competition could have been loud, but with partnerships front and center in our work, it made sense for Urban Health Editor, Reza Clifton, to return to her post as Guest/Health Editor for She Shines Magazine. This year, the theme is Minority Health: Our Stories, Our Bodies, Our Lives, and the writers and topics that are in so far are sure to inform, and inspire you.

But is there still room for your story to be told or voice to heard?
