If you want the career you don’t have, you must dress for that career. Dressing for the career you want (and not the one you have) isn’t a matter of just putting on new clothes.

Internalizing and making personal your goals, starts and ends with dressing for the career you want. That means dressing, talking, behaving, and crafting a résumé and brand image consistent with your ultimate aspirations. In essence, you have to be the whole package if you’re going to get where you want to go.
African Americans living in parts of Alabama will get improved access to community-based health services to prevent heart attacks and strokes through a new public, private partnership led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The National Baptist Convention will build on the strengths of faith-based organizations to connect communities to vital health care resources like hypertension management services, including blood pressure monitoring, free or low-cost medication, and patient counseling and education.
