About this Event
UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on Thursday, December 9th at 12:00 PM for a discussion called “Health Equity: A Unique Perspective” via Zoom. The talk will feature Alexis Day, a Masters of Healthcare Administration graduate from the historically Black college, Florida A&M University. She is also an alumnus of UCSF’s Advancing Black Pathways Internship, a program designed to introduce talented and motivated Black undergraduates and graduate students to the healthcare administrative industry, build early professional development skills, and provide defined pathways to future opportunities at UCSF.
Alexis is currently a Data Quality Assurance Analyst for RUVOS, a premier cloud consulting partner in healthcare, but aims to become a director of a rehabilitation facility for children with disabilities. She will be speaking about her unique childhood and how it has impacted her perception and experience in the healthcare field.
You can register for the talk here and learn more about Alexis’s professional and educational career here. This lecture is free to attend but donations to the Black Employees Alliance (BEA) are strongly encouraged.
This event was planned by a diverse group of UCSF staff who organized in response to the ongoing racial injustices. The goal of the UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice monthly speaker series is to promote critical thinking and action around intersectional structures of power, privilege, and racial oppression in clinical care, education, and beyond. We will continue to highlight the efforts of community antiracism activists.
