February 18, 2018
Congratulations to Dr. Charissa Govan for fabulously coordinating the 2018 Annual African American Read In at Billy E. Dade Middle school in Dallas Texas. Children from the Dallas Independent School District participated in the event. Eager readers were inspired through motivational speeches, skits and music to empower their lives through literature. It was quite an honor for me to be invited and to share A Smarties Book series at such a wondrous activity.
Piper Lee and I joined Allergy & Asthma Network Day on Capitol Hill to advocate for people who suffer with allergy and asthma. This was the 20th annual event for the Network. I was an incredible honor to sit down and meet with members of congress and their staff. I received an opportunity to sit down with Representative Ami Bera and discuss the issues that lie before us. He was very generous with his time and understands the challenges healthcare faces. Trish Lawson, President & CEO of AllergyBright Communities joined forces with us during our meetings. Our encounter with Senator Cory Booker was an extra treat. Throughout the weeks I will post letters from my patients that I shared with members of Congress. Thank you Allergy & Asthma Network for inviting me to participate in this wonderful and much needed activity.
