About Us.

Our Mission

Transform medical and health professional education to improve the health of Black communities across Canada. 

We are Black scholars and practitioners committed to transforming medical and health professional education in service of improved health of Black communities across Canada. 

We address anti-Black racism and the interlocking systems that impact the health and wellbeing of Black communities across Canada

We draw on long histories of community and academic scholarship, activism and resistance from Black, critical race theory, queer, feminist, anti/decolonial traditions

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
