For this month’s partner spotlight we had the great privilege to interview Dr. Lashale Pugh. Dr. Pugh is a member of HCP’s Healthy Food Retail Action team and is the Assistant Executive Director/ Research & Evaluation Director at the Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition (NEOBHC). In her role Dr. Pugh works to educate the community about the factors that lead to healthy disparities and works to increase community access to healthy, nutritious, and culturally appropriate foods through her food justice work. We cannot fit all the details of her work in this brief introduction so, check out her interview below to hear about the work that is happening at NEOBHC and what she wants the community to know about minority health month!
