In his free time, DuJuan enjoys spending quality time with family.  They are active in community events and partake in many joyous family outings.

What DuJuan is looking forward to most being with Mother & Child Health Coalition is working, learning and growing with everyone associated with the Coalition.  DuJuan’s motto is “Promoting healthy and injury-free lives from the beginning, through awareness and education.”

We are certain that DuJuan’s broad experience and skills, his enthusiasm and willingness to learn will make him a joy to work with as well as an effective program coordinator.
