NCHH30 Throwback Thursday

Week 11: August 11, 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 from a CDC lead training event at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza on August 12, 2009. Dominique Clark (now Hannah) on the left and Michelle Nusum-Smith (middle) are old friends who ran Healthy Housing Solutions, NCHH’s for-profit subsidiary, after Jack Anderson moved on to teach lead-safe work practices full-time in late 2008. On the right is Laura Titus, who managed the daily operations of the National Healthy Homes Training Center and Network for NCHH and, later, Healthy Housing Solutions, until 2019. It was hard work, but no matter how long or late the hours, these ladies never stopped smiling. Michelle now consults, coaches, and trains as The Word Woman LLC.
