Cris Simone recognizes it is often hard for women to meet the challenge of careers while maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, exercise, and time to pamper themselves. Unfortunately women of color are most disproportionately affected by chronic illnesses. Many of these illnesses are the result of poor diets, lack of exercise and stressful environment. The professional woman of color is often forgotten when health disparities are discussed because they are expected to know better and have access to the necessary resources to live healthy lifestyles.
