Dr. Uché Blackstock is a Harvard-educated physician who is passionate about equity and justice in healthcare and society. As a child, she watched her mother, Dr. Dale Blackstock, a Black woman in medicine, navigate the world with the odds squarely stacked against her. Raised by a single mother with six children, on public assistance, Dr. Blackstock’s mother was the first person in her family to attend college. She died at only 47 years old. Over the last ten years, as a Board-certified Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. Blackstock has had first-hand experience with the healthcare system and the deleterious impact of health disparities on our marginalized populations and communities. Her mother’s legacy inspires her to use her voice to advance health equity and to address the detrimental effects of structural racism and other systems of oppression on the health status of our communities. Ultimately, she created Advancing Health Equity with the goal of partnering with healthcare organizations to address a few of the critical factors that contribute to health inequity, through educational trainings and racial equity culture analytics.
