Christine VanHorne is a public health consultant, speaker, trainer, facilitator, patient advocate and a fearless advocate for race equity and health disparities. I met Christie in Heather Sager's Speak Up to Level Up Class. Her journey from undergrad student majoring in Genocide studies, to the Peace Corps, to Public Health, will motivate you. We have a great conversation about how white people must speak up against racism, working in communities, speaking to your doctor and so much more. It is the stories people have to share that motivate Christie. Enjoy!
