“Before joining the Virgin Islands Partners for Healthy Communities I tried many different ways of dealing with my diabetes and hypertension. Once I enrolled in the VIPHC program the staff helped me with what I eat, a counselor case manager spoke with me and even helped me to see a doctor. Then things started improving, now I’m a lot stronger and holding up very well. I would recommend this program toanyone; I would even bring them in here myself.”

“The Virgin Islands Partners for Healthy Communities classes really helped me learn how to do proper breathing techniques and how to talk to my baby while she was inside of me. They even went over with me in detail about how the pelvic bone stretches in child birth and the correct exercise to help with pain management during labor. We talked a lot about the importance of breastfeeding. This program prepared me to be a better mom. I would recommend the VIPHC program to any of the moms and moms to be. It was a real benefit to be part of this program.”
