Advancing Black Feminism in Public Health: From Thought Leadership to Practice


Meeting Description:
Advancing black feminism in public health is the “radical” idea that
black women as thought leaders and health advocates should be
moved from “the margins to the center” of the fight against health
disparities disproportionately impacting black women. Black
feminism serves as a legitimate framework in public health for
guiding research, planning, programs, treatment, partnerships,
practices, and policies designed to address health disparities and
inequities.
 
This workshop engages public health professionals and
activists on how to integrate black feminist theory as a way to
enhance health education and promotion aimed at better health
outcomes for black women and girls. This webinar is a great tool toward making the culture humility case for those championing health equity.

Dr. Quinn M. Gentry began working as a behavioral interventionist
at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health in 1999, and
has been researching and advancing black feminism in public health
for two decades. She has applied black feminism in public health as
a theoretical, interpretive, analytical, and evaluation framework on
diverse public health topics, including HIV/AIDS, adolescent health,
intimate partner violence, maternal and child health, substance
abuse, mental health, reproductive health, and obesity-related
health issues. With funding from the Department of Health and
Humans Services’ Office on Women’s Health, Administration for
Children and Families, and the National Institutes of Health, her
research on black feminism has been translated into practice
resulting in several community-based interventions.
