MoDa Health was birth out of the culmination of many life events, but it was one particular paper from the Ethnicity & Disease journal that serves as its springboard. The article entitled: “Relations of Black Mothers’ and Daughters’ body fatness, physical activity and behavior.”
MoDa endeavors to shed light on the epidemic that is plaguing our mothers and daughters: sedentary lifestyles and obesity. Our goal is to be mediators to mothers and daughters to guide them from unconsciously volatile lifestyles that revolve around unhealthy eating habits and inactivity to a different perspective that will center around healthy eating, living and relationships with one another. We envision substituting the typical mother-daughter outing from just getting their hair/nails done and treating themselves to an unhealthy meal to walking/jogging/ biking/ dancing together and truly nurturing that unique bond that only a mother and daughter can have.
It won’t be easy, but anything worthwhile never is….good thing you already have a cheerleader, support and friend in MoDa health here by your side every step of the way.
This isn’t just about losing weight or eating a fresh clean diet. At it’s core, it’s foundation, is the relationship of mothers and daughters. So often we see the media sensationalizing the father-son or father-daughter relationship but mothers and daughters are not given even 15 minutes in the spotlight. When was the last time you saw a mother-daughter team running a marathon, walking for a cause, attending (and participating) in a dance class together or even teaching a physical activity class. They are a rare sight, especially when we focus on minorities.
