The First Ladies Health Initiative, named for pastors’ wives who volunteer their churches for the free health tests, is led by Mrs. Cranley and Co-Chair Barbara Lynch, First Lady of New Jerusalem Baptist Church, in conjunction with The Center for Closing the Health Gap.

The focus of the Leadership Institute will be to address the whole person as it relates to the urban male.

With the almost weekly killing and/or violent outcomes of the urban male, Nadir would like to speak to the need and possible solutions to eradicate this crisis within the City of Cincinnati and its surrounding communities.
