Women’s Health Initiative

The YWCA of Lubbock began the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) in 1996. The initiative focuses on women and men in Lubbock and the seventeen surrounding counties of the South Plains who fall within 200% of poverty guidelines and have no health insurance coverage or who are under-insured.
