When there is no clear path, make your own. Our guest on this episode had been faced with what could be considered challenges, but which she instead chose to see as opportunities. Tonya Nash is a passionate advocate for people with disabilities. Her interest in this particular specialization within public health arose when her two sons were diagnosed with autism, and one with epilepsy. It didn’t take long for her to realize that there is a lack of understanding within many faith-based institutions around how to include people with health issues of this type. Through the two organizations she founded, Autism Faith Network and Spectrum Public Health Strategies, her goal is to change this, and we are so on board with her mission!
