About this Event
The UCSF Healthcare Advocates for Social Justice invite you to join us on Thursday, February 22nd at 12PM for a discussion called “Hear Us, See Us: Listening to Patients of Color.” The talk will feature business consultant, strategist, coach and lupus patient, Angela Bishop Ross, MPH, MBA.
Angela held key positions at several Fortune 500, tech, and small business startups. She has over 25 years of experience in organizational and strategic development, business, and financial management consulting. Angela also joined her family business as Principal and Managing Partner of her family's 38-year-old consulting firm. However, not long after she took the helm, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of systemic/CNS lupus that collectively affected her heart, lungs, blood, and central nervous system, opening the door for many other issues such as strokes, seizures, partial paralysis, memory loss, and many other issues. She now coaches women and patients of color to advocate themselves and become their best selves.
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.
