NCHH30 Throwback Thursday

Week 8: July 21, 2022

by Christopher Bloom

NCHH turns THIRTY this year, so we’re celebrating with a new “Throwback Thursday” photo each week.

This week’s #throwback is a group shot from the Congressional Briefing on Housing Hazards and Health in Washington, DC, on July 22, 2015. From left to right are Julie Kruse, NCHH’s policy director from 2014-2016; Erma Taylor, a community healthy housing advocate whose home NCHH worked on with our friends at Rebuilding Together; advocate Kelleigh Eastman, who was poisoned by lead as a child; Dr. Joycelyn Elders, U.S. Surgeon General from 1993-1994 and also an NCHH board member from 2007-2019; and Amanda Reddy, then NCHH’s director of strategy and impact (and now executive director). Here’s a video of Julie and Dr. Elders from that briefing session.
