- LCIRN Co-Ordinator
Lived in 6 different countries, holding a strong background in fund-raising, research, teaching, project management, public speaking and community engagement.
For almost 2 decades, much focus was based on social justice, child/human rights, multiculturalism and equality in accessing resources such as health care and education.
Such are reflected via the following accomplishments: Ann Grant Memorial Award, Berea College; European Human Rights Education Certificate, Krzyżowa/Poland; Certificate: “An international perspective: policy and practice and child/youth poverty,” The Hague/Netherlands; ‘Institutions are not for Children’ Campaign, European Parliament; International Conference Symposium Certificate, Copenhagen/Denmark; ‘Indigenous Canada,’ ‘Aboriginal Worldviews and Education,’ Canada.
Increasing equal access to health care presents a key avenue to fulfilling both the basic needs and fundamental human rights while providing a sustainable living environment for various community members, socially and economically. Community partners can work together to bringing about not only improved access to health care but also quality of service provision.
