CHEVY CHASE, Md., July 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The COSHAR Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to health education, improvement and empowerment with a focus on minority and disadvantaged populations, hosts National Women's Health Awareness Day on Saturday, July 19 in conjunction with the Ebenezer African Methodist Episcopal (A.M.E.) Church in Fort Washington, Md. The free community event is part of The COSHAR Foundation's national immunization awareness campaign, which has reached more than 9,500 churches and community organizations to date with information that helps educate their congregations and community members about the importance of vaccination among the African-American community.

"With more than a quarter of children in the United States missing life-saving vaccines, it's important that parents know that vaccines can prevent potentially life-threatening diseases, as long as children stay up-to-date on their immunizations," said Sharon Allison-Ottey, M.D., executive director of The COSHAR Foundation. "We are pleased to be participating in the Ebenezer A.M.E. Church's Annual Women's Health Awareness Day -- one of the largest health events in Maryland to educate African-American women about the importance of their health."

This year's event will offer an hour-long workshop focusing on the importance of immunizations that will feature a local pediatrician, a public health nurse and a representative from the local health department. In addition, health screenings, empowerment sessions and educational materials on topics, including immunizations, heart disease and emergencies in the home will be offered to attendees.

"The Women's Health Awareness Day event has touched the lives of thousands of women and their families ov
