After reading the book ACRES OF DIAMONDS by Russell Conwell, I am convinced we are all leaving the diamond mines in our own back yards as we travel around the world looking for larger diamonds, when in fact the diamonds we seek are found within us and our hometown, from whence we came. Therefore, we are calling the podcast, #IAMRIVIERABEACH. #RIVIERABEACHPRIDE
Our vision is to shed a bright light on the wonderful, smart, talented individuals from our great City, Riviera Beach, Florida.
Topic: MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION
Our first guest is Councilwoman Dr. Teresa Johnson, Town of Haverhill Council, Seat 5, she has worked in the non-profit industry for over 22 years and is currently the Executive Director of Northwest Community Consortium Inc. (NCCI) where she is charged with community revitalization activities, creating partnerships with residents, non-profits, law enforcement, governmental agencies and community engagement. Dr. Johnson currently serves as Treasurer on the Northwest Community Health Alliance Board, which is a collaboration with Florida Atlantic University and Tabernacle Learning Center to provide health care access for the uninsured and under-insured populations of the Northwest community.
Our second guest is Artie J.
