The Time is Now: Purposeful Practice to Influence African American Health
The Bay Area Black Nurses Association (BABNA), Inc. is excited to invite you to our 8th Annual Florence Stroud Black History Month Nursing Conference Series: “The Time is Now: Purposeful Practice to Influence African American Health”. The objective of the annual conference is to engage, educate, and entertain attendees about health and social inequality among people of African heritage. The agenda for the conference includes an educational framework and the honoring of a well-deserving nurse with the Florence Stroud Pioneer award.
A trailblazer in her own right, Ms. Florence “Flo” Stroud was the first African American to serve as the Health Director for the city of Berkeley, professor and head pediatric nurse at UCSF Medical Center, researcher on health disparities in ethnic communities, held many appointments at the local and state levels, and was the Co-founder of BABNA. Acknowledging Ms. Stroud’s phenomenal contributions to advancing the nursing profession and advocating for the quality of healthcare in the African American community, BABNA commemorates a practicing nurse who exemplifies the trailblazing efforts of Ms. Flo Stroud during the conference.
Included with each registration, participates will be provided: breakfast, lunch, and 6 continuing education units for licensed professions. The unique conference will present relevant education on health disparities, the current state of healthcare in America, and discussions on the following topics: Human Trafficking, Workkforce Action Coalition, Incivility, Health Provider Self Care, and the Black Nursing Student Experience. The program will include an entertaining Black History program and the fun tradition of joining in the electric slide.
