Episode 3: Stop Being Afraid to Grow Old Ft. Gerontologist Christina Peoples
In episode 3 of Do Something Good Today, we tackle the issue of aging. There’s a lot of fear and stigma around getting old, even though it’s something most of us will experience. Aging should be embraced. It's a blessing to grow old and wise. I had the opportunity to sit down with Gerontologist, Christina Peoples. Christina holds a master’s degree in gerontology. She has an online platform dedicated to providing education on aging, called Gero What. In this episode we talked about, what the study of gerontology is and how it’s useful in everyday life, what gerontology is and why Christina got her master's degree in this field, ageism, age denial, and why these things can be problematic, common myths and stereotypes about aging, and more.  Guest IG: @Gero_What Guest IG Website Link: www.gerowhat.com Everybody's Juice Website Link: www.everybodysjuice.com

Episode 2: Women's Health Ft. Dietitian Valerie Ageyman
Registered Women's Dietitian, Valerie Ageyman has a great purpose in life. Given the fact that only 2.3% of dietitians across the entire field in the U.S. are black, she's out to make it her responsibility to show representation in the field.  It was an honor to sit down with Valerie to tackle representation in the dietitian industry and dispel myths about women's health. In episode 2 of Do Something Good Today, Valerie explained key nutrients needed while going through pregnancy, why supplements can't supersede a good diet, the difference between good fats and bad fats, and more.

Doing Something Good for Your Community Ft. Mary Blackford of Market 7
Native Washingtonian, Mary Blackford was inspired to create Market 7, a food hall market, while on a teaching trip to Ghana, where she saw firsthand how integral community markets were to underserved residents. In 2017, she began hosting pop-up and flea markets in Ward 7 to give Black food businesses and farmers an opportunity to showcase their products, but more importantly to give residents of Ward 7 a chance to purchase healthy food options. In 2019, Mary and her team broke ground on a 7000 square foot building that will operate a food market hall, food incubator and event space in the heart of Ward 7 DC. In episode 1 of Do Something Good Today, I spoke with Mary on the food injustice that has long taken place in Ward 7 & 8 in Washington, DC, the clear connection between food insecurity and the rise of poverty and health ailments in the black community, how she funded her 7,000 square foot food market hall, and more. We went in-depth on actionable items and even discussed topics that have that will take steps to eliminate food insecurity in these particular Wards.  Everybody's Juice: EverybodysJuice.com Market7: Market7DC.com
