Those collaborating on Run For Change – namely, Farhiya Mohamed, Floribert Mubalama, Veena Krishna, Jessica Schreindl, Jim McCue, and Jordan Mutamba – are Health Literacy Heroes because they are directly addressing the health disparities that exist throughout South King County. This initiative is the first of its kind in South King County, and by creating a unified voice for immigrant and refugee families from different countries and cultures, Run For Change acts as a community-based approach to realizing greater health outcomes for all.
