The theme for Black History Month is health and wellness. Throughout the month, UGTS has conducted interviews (available on Facebook) with key players in the community to discuss decolonizing the health system, challenges faced, discriminations experienced and discussions on how to move forward on closing the inequity gap. These interviews come from the point of view of Black community liaison, Parris Abraham with Dr. Charles Quist‐Adade, Orene Askew aka DJ O Show and Dr. Ruth Habte.
