What impact has Milwaukee AHEC had in your life? 

"As a CHW, I am honored to be in the place of being an advocate for those re-entering the community. This is the tip of the iceberg of my passion for this work. I've been praying for avenues to open to let people know they are not forgotten; they are not forsaken.

We are in 2021, and I believe change is here and change has started with each CHW in the streets and in the community. I love what Joe Calderon told us in a training class - he said, 'We can change the narrative.'"
