Celebrating Black History Month
Every February, people in Canada are invited to participate in Black History Month festivities and events that honour the legacy of Black Canadians and their communities.
Across the Can-SOLVE CKD Network, we strive to transform treatment and care for all Canadians living with or at risk for chronic kidney disease. We have a shared responsibility and commitment to advancing equitable, patient-oriented research of the highest quality through our core values of inclusion, cultural safety, and collaboration.
In our continuing path towards inclusivity we are pleased to acknowledge our partnership with the Black Health Alliance, which is a community-led charity working to improve the health and well-being of Black communities in Canada. As an organization that is focused on responding to disproportionately poor health outcomes among Black populations related to chronic conditions, the social determinants of health, and anti-Black racism, the Black Health Alliance supports the improvement of health through interventions that prevent chronic disease.
We look forward to bringing our groups together to share and learn as we continue to create a safe space within our network for the BIPOC community.
