I met Dr. Bates at the local TV station where we both are regular contributors. That morning she was talking about self-care being more than just manicures and showcased her book and The Project Resiliency Movement. The Project Resiliency Movement, a social movement that empowers women of color in areas of self-care including mental, physical and emotional health provides connectivity and support to other women of color through resiliency circles, conferences, workshops and more. In addition to being the founder of The Project Resiliency Movement, she’s also the leader of the Dr. Bates brand, which will help empower women of all different backgrounds to tap into their own wellness for the body, mind and soul.
