In this presenter series, you'll meet the presenters for the Minnesota Holistic Nurses Association event on June 4, 2022.
Get excited to meet our first presenter!
Director of Community Engagement, Family Tree Clinic
Jacki believes sex-positive sex education and health access resources will save the world; as they are tools for dismantling oppressive systems and uplifting liberation. With an emphasis on racial justice, artistic expression and community organizing, Jacki is passionate about intersectional sexual health and sees it as a way to not only support the health and confidence of individuals, but whole communities as well.
The work of Community Engagement supports Family Tree Clinic's vision of eliminating health disparities by serving as a bridge between the clinic and community; acknowledging the need to mend relationships broken by a larger medical industrial system and history of harm - especially done to BIPOC.
Jacki believes in people; the community knows what they need. She has a BA in African American and African Studies from the University of Minnesota.
When Jacki is not at work, she is off being a superhero or hanging at the dog park without a dog.
Jacki will be presenting "Journey to Gender Inclusive Healthcare."
What can I expect?
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual, asexual, and two spirit (LGBTQIA2S+) people often do not seek health care because of barriers and discrimination.
Join us in June to learn from a diverse group of presenters about health care and health challenges in our LGBTQIA2S+ communities and engage in Q&A sessions.
The presenters, who all identify as LGBTQIA2S+, are working to improve health within mainstream health care and in their cultural communities. You will also hear from voices often under-represented in health care.
