Birmingham Councilwoman makes national presentation

Birmingham City Councilwoman Sheila Tyson delivered a presentation Wednesday during the American Public Health Association's Annual Meeting in Boston.

The group is made up of renowned physicians, administrators and other health specialists.

Tyson's presentation focused on mental health and depression. She has been collaborating with the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Ryals School of Public Health. The joint program,"My Sisters' Keeper," aims to evaluate mental health issues and provide support for mothers.

"Too often, moms - especially low-income, working moms - don't receive any kind of support or treatment," Tyson said in a recent press release. "Robin and Susan showed unbelievable concern for these women, many of whom were carrying the weight of an entire household alone."
