Lolita M. Ross Senior Program Manager - Mississippi
"We have an opportunity to restore a sense of community. To support and engage in activities that create equitable opportunities that help individuals and families live healthier, better lives. So that when we pass our neighbor on the street and ask; "How are you doing today" they can reply; "I am fine" and for some, for the first time, they will really mean it."
(Lolita M. Ross)
