The Local Take on WCLK

This week on The Local Take, I speak with Chef Ashley Keyes, the executive chef at C. H. O. I. C. E. S, the Center Helping Children End Obesity Successfully, about healthy holiday side dishes. I asked her about any favorite childhood holiday food memories. She spoke about the food her grandparents served. 

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to Justine Boyd, the United Negro College Fund's regional development director. I asked her about the non-profit and how they are surviving during the pandemic. She spoke to the organization being the largest and most effective provider of scholarships for HBCUs. They support 37 HBCU's and distribute $100M in scholarships annually. UNCF students attend Clark Atlanta University(WCLK's FCC licensee) every year.

Saturday morning on WCLK's The Local Take, as part of our ongoing COVID19 stories, I speak with Stepp Stewart, a choreographer who has entertained us with soulful musicals throughout the years. Live performers have not been able to entertain during the Pandemic. Broadway shut down and isn't scheduled to open until Spring 2021. Summer festivals, holiday concerts, plays, everything has been put on hold. I ask Stepp, a veteran of the Broadway stage, how he has been impacted.

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take we're speaking with Seema Varna, an administrator with the Center for Medicare Services(CMS). The Open Enrollment period for Medicare runs through December 7th. Everyone is encouraged to do an honest annual assessment of their health needs. Often you may find a provider that answers more of your needs. 

This week on The Local Take, I speak with Breanna Lathrop, Chief Operations Officer at Good Samaritan  Health Center on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway NW. She came to talk to us about COVID-19 testing available daily at the health center.
