Ep3: Building Your Immunity
In recent years, despite it being muffled the last four, there has been a lot of discussion and action surrounding improving access to healthcare. However, I think it is of great importance that we recgonize that we don't get healthy from going to the doctor or the hospital. We get cures or help with managing a condition, but we get healthy from what we do on a day to day basis. In this episode, I will have Charmaine Jones, Registered Dietician and owner of Food Jonezi, join me for a discussion on fitness and nutrition. Learn how you can build your immunity and prevent chronic diseases through exercise and the foods you choose to put in your body!
Ep 2: Creating Your Own Opportunity
Get inspired to build and be innovative during a time where we could use extra streams of income. In this segment, learn from long term entrepreneurs about how they got started and what drove them to get out on their own. What strategies did they use? What does it take? What mistakes did they make? What challenges did they have? Also hear from an individual who was laid off at the very beginning of the shutdown, but quickly created a Plan B that landed her in the Washingtonian and DCist. A true story of making lemonade out of lemons. Lastly, learn how each of these individuals are giving back and having an understanding that there are less privileged individuals that need a helping hand especially during these unprecedented times. This will be the most important part of the conversation as we speak into existence the end of the "Me" era.
Ep 1: Moving Forward and Managing Our Health in Place
Learn about the effects of a quarantine on our mental health, what to look out for and what preventative measures can be taken from Psychiatrist, Dr. Petronella Mbu. Gain valuable insight on working from home, managing pain and maintaining physical function in enclosed spaces from Physical Therapist, Dr. Christen Gumbs. Lastly, understand the issues that exist in the health care system, how COVID-19 is overtaxing our system nationwide and how this is doubly impacting hospitals and clinics serving underserved, black and brown communities. Together, we will talk about solutions now and moving forward as we work to Survive, Live and Thrive During COVID-19.
