|To:||All House members|
|Subject:||Faatimah Gamble Resolution|
In the very near future, I plan to introduce a resolution honoring Faatimah Gamble. Faatimah Gamble co-founded along with her husband Kenneth Gamble, Universal Companies, a group of organizations that provides a wide range of comprehensive services to rebuild Urban America.
One thing that was missing among Universal’s repertoire however was health education, something Faatimah had grown very passionate about. Therefore, in 1996, she founded The Wellness of You, Inc., a nonprofit organization with a mission of introducing healthy lifestyle practices to medically underserved communities.
A Poet, a former radio talk-show host and restaurateur; she is the recipient of many awards for her community and philanthropic efforts. She currently serves as President of The Wellness of You, Inc; Co-Chairperson of Universal Companies and a member of the Board of Directors of the Universal Institute Charter School. Her plans for the future are focused on Youth programming and health advocacy, specifically in the areas of preventive medicine and obesity education.
