162. Adversity to Advocacy

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

When you live it and learn it, you can lead it… hence I am so excited to welcome Dr. Lucille Johnson to the T&T mic! Dr. Lucille is an accomplished public health consultant with a wealth of knowledge and experience! She is on a mission to level up public health care, education, and awareness for communities of all socioeconomic statuses as well as being a strong representation on the business side of it all. Dr. Lucille shares her personal and business journey in health and wellness, sharing golden nuggets throughout on how you can stay mindful to stay healthy and tuned-in to what your body (and mind) are telling you. There is no better time than now to advocate for yourself so you can advocate for others- so you can ultimately chase the mission/dream and walk in purpose, whatever that might be.

This one is a video, so be sure to check us out on You Tube!


Health, wellness, and healing. Health care and lack thereof. Advocacy, education, and meeting people where they are at. Graceful disruption. Nutrition and health care in communities of color. Access and knowing your worth. Personal responsibility and due diligence, even when you think you are “healthy”. Therapy, Therapy, Therapy!
