Gobblehook is the family name of the Displaced Persons, as mispronounced by Mrs. Shortley in Flannery O'Connor's short story "The Displaced Person."

Ms. Gobblehook's biography[edit]

I am a health worker[1][2] and adult educator from Louisiana.

I have taught community-based health work classes to student, neighborhood, church, and issues-based groups; and have spoken on power disparities and health outcomes at the 24th and 25th annual reproductive rights conferences hosted by the Civil Liberties and Public Policy program at Hampshire College.

I am the co-founder (with South African freedom fighter[3][4][5] Mongezi Sefika wa Nkomo) of an organization through which I consult with health and community-based groups to promote approaches to health work that strengthen the fabric of the community.

As a street medic, I have provided first aid support at fourteen political actions, including the 2004 March for Women's Lives in Washington, D.C. and the 2006 Great Flood Commemoration March in New Orleans.

I ran an underground free health post in my inner-city neighborhood from 2003-2004, and currently assist in the development of a post- Katrina free integrative family medicine center I helped to found in September 2005.

I am a pre-nursing student, and a member of the United Church of Christ.

My heritage: I am the Pennsylvania German / Appalachian granddaughter, grandniece, and great-grandniece of coal miners from Schuylkill county.
