WISEWOMAN Success Stories

WISEWOMAN Works: A Collection of Success Stories

WISEWOMAN Works is a collection of success stories highlighting some of the ways that CDC–funded WISEWOMAN Programs are making a difference for financially disadvantaged women participants. Through success stories, WISEWOMAN Works provides a method for health professionals to share information about grassroots efforts to promote the health of women in need. By including sections on how to use success stories, writing your own success stories, and adapting your stories for multiple purposes, WISEWOMAN Works provides technical assistance to help health professionals capture success stories. A total of 25 stories have been published in two volumes and provide examples of strategies that build strong WISEWOMAN programs: expanding access, reaching culturally diverse women, women helping women, and developing partnerships.
