What would you do if your father had a heart attack, and he was living thousands of miles away in a different country, and your options were very limited as to how to help him?
That is the exact scenario that faced our guest today. She lives in New York and her father was living in Ghana. This emergency situation led her on a journey of discovering the disparities of the heath care system in Ghana and she knew at that moment, she had to do something about it. She soon started a Nonprofit to address these needs. Nana Eyeson-Akiwowo is our guest today and she is the Founder and Director of African Health Now. Her story is all about seeing a need, and meeting it. We believe her story will inspire you to make a difference in your own world. Enjoy today’s show.

Many of you may not know that I’m the father of three daughters. As such, I am regularly helping them navigate through various options for their future education and potential career opportunities. When it comes to education, one of the buzzwords that is ubiquitous in today’s educational world is STEM. Historically, women and girls have been underrepresented in STEM related fields. Our guest on the show today is Janice Levenhagen, founder and CEO of ChickTech, which is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing and retaining the number of women and girls in technology-based careers. Motivated by her own experience, Janice has helped to develop workshop programs, creating greater awareness about/ and access to/ female role models, in order to spark interest in STEM-related fields. Enjoy today’s show as Janice shares what the nonprofit she leads is doing to encourage more women and girls to consider STEM-related careers.
