Community Manager Margery Hannah and mentee alum Chanelle Ferguson dive into the ways that their upbringing in their particular communities has influenced their relationship to physical health, and how care for the body is intimately tied to care for the soul. This episode covers tea as a favored Caribbean remedy, how to handle stress in the body, and how food deserts are affecting communities of color.
