HEALTH EQUITY + HEALTH PROMOTION WORK

My health equity work includes (arts-based) education for marginalized groups primarily on sexual health, mental health and harm reduction. I also teach other public health professionals how to work effectively and meaningfully with marginalized populations including prisoners, sex workers, queer, Black and other Racialized communities.

In 2016,  I graduated from a Masters in Social and Behaviour Health Sciences from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at University of Toronto and am now a Health Promoter specializing in health equity, marginalized population health. I am currently the Executive Director of a small non-profit organization.   

I am the recipient of awards from Canadian Federation of University Women, Dalla Lana School of Public Health (Health Equity), Canadian Association for HIV Research,  and the City of Toronto (Access, Human Rights and Equity).
