Women in the Health Professions course
It was a pleasure to accept Dr. Merritt Brockman's invitation today to guest lecture in her Women in the Health Professions course. I was able to share the role I play in Behavioral Health Counseling and my key contributions to the health care field. What a great group of engaged and attentive students! It was a great class Dr. Brockman!
Cultural Competence Training
Our interprofessional continuing education cultural competence training was powerful! The participants were interested, active, and engaged both in person and online! Dr. Bernice Kennedy contributed her 40 years of nursing practice and her extensive record of scholarship virtually from South Carolina! I contributed my 13 years of community mental health experience, licensed professional counselor experience, and scholarship! Interprofessional practice is key in delivering a robust understanding of the experiences of African American Women!
Black Doctoral Network Conference
It was a great honor to present Black Women's Health along with Dr. Angela Njenga of Texas University and Doctoral Student Renee Whitaker of Queen's University! Something amazing about our panel is that our collective discussed African American women, African women from Somali, and Caribbean women living in Canada. Depression, Perinatal Cultural Beliefs, and Self- Care were explored! It was interesting to note both the common and varying themes among Black race women of different ethnicities! Excellent work Black women!
