Sweet Remedy Radio: Gigi Stafne Interview
Herbalists Without Borders™ first began as a grassroots community based coalition of members working in their communities under a common goal in the US in early 90's. From there, the HWB Community Clinics Model informally began in 1995 in the upper midwest (later formalizing in 2007 and expanded to a global network) with mobile natural medicine clinic units in various locales providing accessible health and wellness education to communities, using a membership based model. As HWB grew, so did our reach, and we had chapters and free people's clinics around the globe starting in 2007, expanding from our North American base and creating a global network of HWB chapters and members working in their communities. Gigi Stafne, as original founder and our first Executive Director, grew HWB from a single Chapter in the upper midwest until it expanded to form a 501c3 nonprofit in 2014-2015, with over 50 Chapters globally. In 2017, Gigi stepped down as ED, and Denise Cusack was appointed, filling the role from 2017-2022. Our current Executive Director, Jocelyn Perez Blanco, is now leading HWB into the future! HWB has over 650 members, and over 75 chapters/clinics/projects! HWB has had members respond globally, and has had member exchanges around the world for 27 years. The name Herbalists Without Borders™ is recognized around the world, with members in dozens of nations serving their communities for almost 3 decades.
