About Care by Chlo
"I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" - Fannie Lou Hamer (1964).
So much of our understanding of what it means to be "healthy" has been tainted by colonialism and Eurocentric standards. Many people in our Black, Latinx, and Indigenous have been disempowered by Western medicine, and the American Medical System continues to strip our communities of their autonomy on a regular basis.
CareByChlo is a virtual platform designed to provide marginalized people the resources needed to be in control of their health. CareByChlo covers issues related to maternity care, reproductive health, mental health, substance abuse, healthy eating, and much more.
