A conversation with Lorrie Lynn King

The United States-based health care organizations, MEDICC and the American Public Health Association, plan regular visits to Cuba as “people to people” exchanges for American health care and medical professionals.  

As the founder of the women’s health care nonprofit 50 Cents. Period., and community health director at the Clarkston Development Foundation, Lorrie Lynn King was able to participate in a visit to Havana and Cienfuegos in April.

When King spoke with Steve Goss recently, she began by talking about the amount of access her group had to Cuban hospitals and clinics.
