Being a healthy living advocate wasn’t always the plan for Prince George’s County resident and You’re the Cure advocate Dionne Bush. But when she was in her mid-20’s and feeling the stress of being a single mother, she decided she needed to change her lifestyle choices. She became involved in personal training, group exercise classes, and started to eat healthier. Now 50-years-young, Dionne is a health, safety, and wellness educator who is committed to teaching others about corrective exercises, healthy eating choices, and how to recognize the signs of heart attack, stroke, and anaphylactic shock. She has also raised her now 23-year-old son to advocate healthy living.

"There are far too many places in the state of Virginia where it is easier for a person to get a Twinkie, versus a banana or an apple. That is tough to swallow." - Secretary of Commerce and Trade, Todd Haymore
