I AM GPH Podcast EP98 The Black Women’s Health Collective: Making Space in Public Health Through Intersectionality

Mary Holiman (President) and Ciara Freeman (Vice President) are two MPH students who serve as leaders of the Black Women’s Health Collective (BWHC). The mission of BWHC is to support and encourage the leadership of Black women in public health while highlighting the health experiences of black women and girls globally. The club is able to do this with programming throughout the year by connecting Black women students and professionals in Public Health, sharing opportunities, and fostering a meaningful space of community and solidarity on NYU’s Campus. In this episode, Ciara and Mary give me insight into the club’s purpose and mission, as well as some events the organization has been holding this academic year such as their recent “Succeeding while Black” event and how the club has opened doors for them- Mary shares a defining internship experience she had. You can keep up with the organization on Instagram (@nyu_bwhc) and by subscribing to their newsletter ( Mary (@queenmvh) and Ciara (@ciarafreeman_) have also made themselves available as a resource or point of contact on Instagram.
