Today, we mark a couple of milestones for the Living Local podcast: Our one-year anniversary and our youngest (and cutest) guest to date! To celebrate one year of Living Local, we invited Tonda Thompson to join us again. Tonda was our very first interview in August of 2016, when she shared her journey from losing a child to working on the issue of infant mortality here at United Way. At the time, Tonda was finishing her tenure as a Public Ally with the Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Families (LIHF) Collaborative, funded by WPP, and was preparing to move on to another job. Today, Tonda is back at United Way, once again working with Lifecourse to reduce racial disparities in and prevent infant mortality in the city of Milwaukee.
