2024 Black History Month 

Join us in the celebration of another year of Black History Month at McGill!

Black History Month aims to celebrate and centre Blackness throughout the history, the present, and the future of McGill and beyond. Black History Month is organized by the Equity Team in the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice-President (Academic). The 2024 edition will feature two main events in partnership with our University Libraries and Department of History and Classical Studies in the Faculty of Arts.

Beyond Barriers: Dan-A-Nou's Mission for Inclusive and Accessible Dental Care

February 28, 5:15 to 7:15 p.m.
2001 McGill College Avenue, Suite 100, room 102

open mouth with teeth showing and text information

The Faculty of Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences is partnering with Dan-A-Nou to discuss historical racial marginalization within the field of dental medicine and spotlight their efforts in advocating for access to dental care. 

The event's keynote speaker is Linda Lubin-Jerome, founder of Dan-A-Nou and a dentist who worked in Haiti for over 20 years in private practice. Through an exploration of both past injustices and current disparities in oral healthcare access, we'll delve into the intersection of income and racial barriers disproportionately affecting black and African diaspora communities. Focusing on Dan-A-Nou's efforts in Haiti and other low-income regions, we will examine the critical need for equitable dental care and highlight innovative approaches to bridging these gaps. Through interactive elements and personal stories, we'll showcase the impact of Dan-A-Nou's work and inspire meaningful action toward achieving dental equity for all.

The event will include Haitian cuisine from Chef Sean Samuels. Register now to be part of the conversation and drive positive change in access to dental care!
