A true advocate for women’s health and empowerment, Jemea S. Dorsey serves as the chief executive officer for the Center for Black Women’s Wellness, Inc. (CBWW), an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization that provides affordable health care services, health education, care coordination services, youth development programs, microenterprise training, and other free and low-cost services to empower black women and their families throughout the Atlanta area. Established in 1988, CBWW has served more than 10,000 metro-Atlanta women. Prior to assuming her leadership position in 2005, Ms. Dorsey spent several years with the organization cultivating program initiatives such as Plain Talk and Healthy Start.

Since becoming CEO for CBWW, Ms. Dorsey has been featured in various media outlets, including CW Atlanta’s “Focus Atlanta,” WRFG’s “Sista’s Time” hosted by Dazon Diallo, and WABE’s “Journey to Wellness” broadcast. In June 2008, she was featured in Atlanta Woman magazine as its “Woman of Impact.”

Prior to joining the center, Ms. Dorsey served as an educational consultant in New York and later as an evaluation consultant for the Family Connection program in Georgia. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and her master’s degree in urban policy from Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy in New York.
