A New Philosophy of Better Health with Mona Antilla Carloni and Mariam Mohamed
What barriers to health might be in place for recent immigrants and how do we put people on a path to better health? At its core, this is a story of culture, understanding the whole person and their unique individual stories — things our health system is just not designed to do. Kurt talks with Mona Antilla Carloni and Mariam Mohamed, the creators of Intercultural Alliance, a program tailored to the health needs of Somali women and taught through community, food, and personal experiences. Mariam, a Somali immigrant herself, has worked in program analysis and evaluation for private and non-profit services. Mona comes from the creative design and marketing world, with a passion for wellness design and holistic health coaching. Learn how they work together to improve health disparities in Somali communities, one person at a time.

The Logistical Challenge of Hunger with Rob Williams
Listen in as Kurt talks with Rob Williams, founder and executive director of Every Meal. Across the United States, one in seven children experiences hunger on a weekly basis. During COVID-19, that number has grown to nearly one in four as schools, where many children receive breakfast and lunch, shut down. Nearly a decade ago, Every Meal stepped in to fill that gap, leaning on Rob’s background in global logistics for direction. What started as a program at one local elementary school has grown to serve 35 school districts across the state, providing more than 3 million meals last year alone. Tune in as Kurt and Rob talk about the roots of hunger and how, at its core, hunger is both simple and solvable.
