Everyday Women. Real Stories. Real Solutions

Join us January 26, 2022 from noon to 1:30 p.m. for a virtual conversation with three empowering women about the intersection of race, identity and culture in Houston, health care inequities, and the beauty of “welcoming the stranger.” All three are positively changing our community.

Dr. Ann Barnes is a health advisor and dot-connector with a commitment to creating health equity through innovations in health promotion, disease prevention, and upstream strategies to improve health. As chief health officer for Harris Health System in Greater Houston, she strives to create opportunities for all people to live their healthiest lives, so that they can achieve their full potential and positively change the world.
Farrah Moussallati Sibai is President and Co-Founder of Afia, a food company dedicated to making authentic Mediterranean cuisine more accessible to Americans and empowering women and children to pursue their best selves.  A refugee herself, she fled for a better life and started over.  She is grateful every day for her own fresh start and to be able to help others.
