Overview of this episode:
I’m excited to introduce you to Misozi Houston, a program coordinator providing programs to reduce poverty and increase access to health education.
She is a public health professional with a passion for community health that goes way back to her childhood.
She has used her personal and professional experiences, across a diverse background including restaurant management and nursing, to transition into public health, demonstrating powerful leadership qualities that I truly admire!
I first mentioned Misozi back in episode #13, where I discussed my face to face meeting with her at the public health conference in Georgia and I even shared a photo of us on the show notes page for that episode. She had been following the podcast for a while at that point, and it was a great opportunity to meet in person. We’ve kept in touch a bit over time and I’ve been able to watch her grow tremendously over this past year.
I am delighted that she accepted my invitation to join me on this episode to share her journey and insights, and I think so many of you will find this episode to be very helpful, insightful, and encouraging.

The name of the nonprofit organization that Misozi mentioned in the podcast is Water Empowerment. Water Empowerment was founded by Misozi's friend as a personal project and way to give back to communities lacking access to basic needs and resources in Zambia, their country of birth.
