Black Women's Health Program
A Webster Public Library Program
(Webster Public Library)
The Webster Public Library is offering a virtual program on Tuesday, June 15 at 7 p.m. that will feature Debora McDell-Hernandez and Dr. Celia McIntosh. Both women were featured individually in chapbooks from the In This Moment series, which will provide an overview on how systemic racism impacts the health and healthcare outcomes of Black women.
Debora McDell-Hernandez is the senior director of Public & Community Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Central & Western New York, and Dr. Celia McIntosh, DNP, RN, FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, SCRN, CEN, CCRN, CNRN, is president of the Rochester Regional Coalition Against Human Trafficking.
In this presentation—co-sponsored by the Pittsford Community Library, Webster Public Library, and Henrietta Public Library—McDell-Hernandez and Dr. McIntosh will also discuss the historical long-standing, deeply-rooted inequities related to social determinants of health, structural inequality, and system failures that continue to perpetuate the cycle of inadequate care. They will also discuss barriers to treatment and political implications that may improve or harm health outcomes.
Registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent the day of the program.
