Dr. Lydia Wytenbroek (Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing), doctoral student Ismalia De Sousa and BSN students Tamasha Hussein, Kelly Nguyen, Ariel Tzu-Han Chiao, Brandon Moeller and Merielle Moffatt varied out a Black History Month project that included a curated physical display, a virtual “walk through” of the display (recorded), and a 55 page flipbook (see below). We hope that these resources will encourage our audience to take a deep dive into the significant contributions of Black Nurses in Canada and across the world who paved the way to a better healthcare. We encourage self-reflection on how historical events and the professionalization of nursing have contributed to current health and social inequities.
Display: We organized a display in the School of Nursing (in front of the administrative offices). The display was available starting on February 4, and remained on exhibit for a couple of months.
Virtual “Walk Through” of Display: A one-hour virtual “walk-through” of the display was offered on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 from 12 – 1 pm.
Flipbook: This flipbook is part of a virtual and curated display, Black History Month 2022 – Celebrating the contributions of Black nurses to healthcare, presented and co-created by nursing students and the Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry in the UBC-V School of Nursing: http://hdl.handle.net/2429/82869
Twitter chat: Dr. Lydia Wytenbroek, Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing, and doctoral students Eunice Bawafaa and Ismalia de Sousa will chat with historians of Black history. Last week of February – date TBA.
