Director, Black Health Education Collaborative

The Black Health Education Collaborative is a community of scholars and practitioners committed to improving Black health through education and research. We are working to transform medical and health professional education. Our mission is to address anti-Black racism and the interlocking systems that impact the health and wellbeing of Black communities across Canada. We understand Black health and Black life as intricately connected to the places and spaces in which we live, work, love, play, worship and resist. We draw on long histories of community and academic scholarship and resistance from Black, critical race theory, queer, feminist, anti/decolonial traditions.
