Long Beach, CA – The KJLH Women’s Health Expo, one of the largest health events for women in Southern California, will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The Expo is presented by the Black Infant Health Program (BIH) Long Beach/Fresno as title sponsor. The theme of this year’s event is “H.E.R. - Healthy, Empowered, Remarkable” and over 10,000 women are expected to attend.

"The KJLH Women’s Health Expo provides a valuable opportunity for women to learn about their health and wellbeing and to connect with resources that can help them lead healthier and happier lives,” said Mayor Rex Richardson. “I applaud the Black Infant Health Program for supporting this event and for their commitment to improving the health of Black women and infants in the city of Long Beach.”

The expo will feature wall-to-wall activities and commodities, including interactive exhibits, free health screenings, workshops and keynote speakers who will address topics such as nutrition, fitness, mental health, reproductive health and financial wellness. 

“We’re excited to once again welcome the renowned Women’s Health Expo to Long Beach this year,” said First District Councilwoman Mary Zendejas. “This longstanding event offers attendees an array of activities, products and services highlighting women’s health and lifestyle, while shining light on our Black Infant Health Program and the empowering resources and services it offers.”

The Expo will shine a spotlight on the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services’ Black Infant Health Program, a 34-year-old program that aims to improve health among Black mothers and babies by empowering pregnant and mothering Black women to make healthy choices for a brighter future.
