Healthcaring Differently is a new movement, created by Dr. Onye Nnorom (“Dr. O.”) to inspire diverse students to pursue careers in healthcare through social media and to expose medical students to diverse career options within medicine.
Dr. Nnorom is a family doctor, public health and preventive medicine specialist, and Assistant Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Dr. Nnorom’s work focuses on health equity, and how racism impacts health, in particular anti-Black racism as a driver of inequities in Canada. She is presently on sabbatical and has decided to launch Healthcaring Differently, a movement to ‘mentor out loud’ through social media!
Every Tuesday from 7:00-7:30pm EST from Feb 20- April 30, you can tune in to hear Dr. O. interview diverse physicians and health leaders across Canada on Instagram-live. Engage with physicians and health leaders of diverse backgrounds – Black, Indigenous, racialized, 2SLGBTQ+, differently-abled, who are doing things differently.
Our first guest is Dr. Aisha Lofters, clinician scientist at Women’s College Hospital and Associate Professor at DLSPH. Topic: Cancer Prevention & Disparities
