Recapping Our Spring Conversation

In mid-May, Tocqueville members gathered at Findorff and had an honest discussion about health disparities in our community, the progress we’ve made and the gaps that still exist.

The conversation was facilitated by Tocqueville Cabinet Chair Cheryl DeMars, and lead by our Community Impact Director of Health, Uchenna “Uno” Jones BSN, RN, CLC. Uchenna was recently honored as a BRAVA Women To Watch and in Madison365’s Most Influential Black Leaders for 2023 List. She shared the impact Tocqueville members are having in creating a healthy community through United Way, specifically through Youth Mental Well-Being Programs, Maternal Child Health Programs and Other Health Programs, in addition to her lived experience as a doula, a nurse and an executive director. Renee Moe provided context for how this fits into the entirety of United Way’s Plan for Community Well-Being 

Many asked questions and shared ideas for propelling the work, and called on local experts in the room to help provide more context. We were grateful for the authenticity and vulnerability of those who attended.
