Flowood, MS - The biggest challenge facing women of color today is still racial inequality. “Women of color are dying 3 to 5 times more than other races related to maternal health. When we look at the data, their educational levels are the same, where they live is the same—it all boils down to racial bias in care,” explains Dr. Jaleen Sims, OB/GYN and co-founder of the Sims Foundation of H.O.P.E.

To help educate all women about the importance of their voices in their healthcare, Dr. Sims recently began Livin’ Well with Dr. Jay on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and https://www.livinwellwithdrjay.com. “My goal for Livin’ Well is for it to become an educational hub for women’s health while also offering speaking and consulting services for community outreach, health event planning and physician services,” explains Dr. Sims. “In the future, I see Livin’ Well having a radio/TV show that highlights inspirational stories around women’s health.”

Jaleen and her husband, Ray, also founded Sims Foundation of H.O.P.E. (Health, Opportunity, Prosperity, and Empowerment) to enhance the lives of underserved people and communities through education, health/wellness information, career/personal development support, and life skills. They also host annual Community Baby Showers and Resource Fairs.

Dr. Sims realizes that, “It takes a village - the Sims Foundation of H.O.P.E. is honored to be a part of that village in the community.”
