Janiya Gethers-Pinckney

Janiya is a 15 year old peer leader from Roxbury who attends the Woodward School. She's been with MassCOSH since the summer of 2015 and has been one of our MLK summer scholars. Janiya is one of the lead facilitators for the APPLES (Asthma Prevention through Peer Leadership and Engagement in Schools) project and recently joined the board this fall. She hopes this work will help improve her school and help others to improve conditions in their schools as well.
