"In my role as an Outreach Coordinator at Women for a Healthy Environment, I get to facilitate workshops related to lead, asthma, air quality, and the use of personal care and cleaning products, all of which are topics that aren’t the first ones that come to mind when thinking about environmental health.

"As a Care Coordinator at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Adolescent Medicine, I mainly serve a group titled CHANGE (Children’s Hospital Advisory Network for Guidance and Empowerment). The group consists of youth ages 14-26 years old who have either a chronic illness or disability. The members and I collaborate to ensure they build life skills and self-advocate in their journey from pediatric to adult healthcare. Through our monthly meetings and occasional one on ones, we come up with ways for them to expand their knowledge and grow."
