(NAPSI)—Would you like to help the nearly 80 percent of U.S. black women who are overweight or obese improve their health? If yes, consider starting a Sisters Together group where you live, work or worship.

Sisters Together: Move More, Eat Better is a national program to help black women ages 18 and older control their weight through healthy eating and physical activity. Designed by the Weight-control Information Network (WIN) of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, the free program guide helps black women form groups that work together to reach their goals.

To help you get started, the Sisters Together Program Guide features:

• Six steps to start and build your own program

• Tips and tools for using local resources, setting goals and planning events

• Sample letters, fact sheets and other items you can adapt for your program
