Kitchen Tables

About the Kitchen Tables

The Kitchen Table is where we meet to have honest conversations about health care issues that are important to us.

Support, Educate, Provide guidance, Talk about challenges Develop solutions

The Kitchen Table is a concept created by Lucinda where women are invited to share their experiences, wisdom and knowledge. We are going to talk unfiltered about the issues. We will educate and support each other in this space. We will discuss issues that we do not often talk about in our community. Not only are we going to expose structures that cause us harm, but we will show our strength and resilience. Then we are going to identify solutions based on what we feel we need.

If there is a topic you want discussed on the Kitchen Table, please let us know.
