Royalty at The Shop

The Shop at the CAC is an innovative shared workspace home to a vibrant and diverse community of professionals and businesses. One such business is Access Health Louisiana (AHL), the largest community health center network in the state. AHL doctors Markalain Dery and Eric Griggs connected The Shop team to Queen Diambi Kabatusuila of the Democratic Republic of Congo for a speaking engagement focused on culture, connectivity, and healthcare.

The Shop proudly welcomed Queen Diambi in spring 2019 to meet its members and the greater New Orleans community. Queen Diambi spoke candidly about her passion for African culture and heritage, her connection to New Orleans, and her work combatting major healthcare issues in Louisiana, the Congo, and beyond.
