Shun ForemanWhen women of color experience health issues, it is not uncommon for them to struggle in silence. My passion is to bring sugar awareness to communities of color through understanding how historical and present-day injuries impact health. By helping women understand how too much sugar relates to metabolic syndrome, they can improve their overall health and ultimately their communities. I know that sugar addiction is real and that everyone may not be able to live a sugar-free lifestyle, so I use history and health to motivate them to make the best food choices.
My educational background includes an undergraduate degree in nursing, a master's degree in Human Rights and Social Justice, a license in Holistic Medicine Addiction, and certification in SUGAR
