Extra Swim Class At City Heights YMCA Becomes Gender, Immigrant Issue

Thank you for sharing this story. I am not a Muslim woman, but I work with the Somali (Muslim) community in the field of public health. We are busy promoting healthy eating and physical activity as some of the best ways to prevent and manage the chronic diseases, like diabetes and hypertension, that are at epidemic levels for all populations across the nation. It is no good for us to recommend these healthy behaviors if there are not opportunities to do them. I applaud the YMCA for their efforts to help the community and create a wonderful opportunity for women who really need it.
