One of my career endeavors is to bridge the gap between public health and journalism so that all communities including the most vulnerable have access to the information they need to be healthy.

 Favorite Purchase

My favorite fitness purchase was the 4Gear ankle straps. I use these for donkey kicks and side lunges on the cable machine. They're packed in a travel case, which fits easily in my bag or backpack.
