"I've had the privilege to travel the country and share personal stories about health and nutrition with the African American community. It's my mission in life to help place real health solutions in front of the world," said Dr. Ro, Circle of Promise ambassador. "I'm excited to be part of this national network. The Circle of Promise is helping African Americans become fortified by what they are able to do for themselves and for others."

African American women have the highest death rate and poorest survival rate for breast cancer of any other racial or ethnic group.

-- Assess your health status. Do you need to eat healthier or become more

-- Decide on your long-term goals.

-- Keep a journal of your experiences.

-- Enlist family and close friends to help you. Having a support system
