A remarkable result of promoting health as a human right is not only the proliferation of physical health itself but also, the newfound freedom to satisfy other essential needs that contribute to a well-lived and dignified life filled with empowerment and self-actualization.

Before joining GHC, Toyosi worked as a health program consultant, specializing in program planning and health communications. As a consultant, Toyosi developed comprehensive communication campaigns and led research that informed the realignment of strategic initiatives for a diverse network of health-centric organizations. In 2013, she joined a multidisciplinary research team to investigate gold standards in global community health practice at the Nanjing Medical University’s School of Public Health in China. Toyosi also coordinated the program operations and process evaluation of the Texas Department of State Health Service’s Youth Tobacco Awareness Program.

Her early experience as an AmeriCorps – Volunteer In Service To America member ignited her passion for public health and social justice advocacy.
