KCK Family Effort Against Diabetes
Here's an important note about a family legacy of service and advocacy in Kansas City, Kansas.
Kamaal and Malcolm Washington have spent most of their lives working to create public awareness about diabetes and championing public health causes. Their work has met with success and is featured in a nationally released book chronicling stories of struggle against diabetes: Type Cast
This is just the latest bit of success for these young men.
Not too long ago they produced an informational book with their dad and anti-crime activist Alonzo Washington.
And they also helped with Joplin relief efforts.
A lot of times we dwell on negative stories about young people on this blog but this family effort against a condition that impacts many in the urban core and throughout the nation is an important example of a bright future for Kansas City activism.
