Black History Month 2022
Celebrating the contributions of Black nurses to healthcare
The UBC Consortium for Nursing History Inquiry will present the following activities to celebrate Black Nurses in history throughout February 2022.
Display: We welcome all who are interested in learning more about and celebrating Black Nurses in history 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. 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 have organized a display in the School of Nursing (in front of the administrative offices). The display will be available on February 4, and will remain on exhibit for a couple of months.
Virtual “Walk Through” of Display: A one-hour virtual “walk-through” of the display will be offered on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 from 12 – 1 pm. Please register for zoom link.
