What is Equity?

"What is equity? In the simplest terms, it means fairness, which is not necessarily the same thing as equality…It’s not about everybody getting the same thing, it’s about everybody getting what they need in order to improve the quality of their situation."

– Cynthia Silva Parker, Senior Associate at Interaction Institute for Social Change and Collaborative Social Change Agent

About Me

I am an Adult Nurse Practitioner in New York City where I provide Primary and Women’s Healthcare to diverse patient populations. I have a Bachelors’ Degree from Howard University, received my Master’s Degree in Nursing and Adult Nurse Practitioner Certification from Hunter College of the City University of New York, and I am an Alumna of the Duke-Johnson & Johnson Nurse Leadership Program. I have 30 years of clinical experience in healthcare, have been recognized with awards for both Customer Service and Clinical Excellence, am active in my local Nurse Practitioner professional organization, and volunteer in my community by educating the public about becoming empowered healthcare consumers. When I am not working to reduce racial implicit bias and health disparities for patients of color, I enjoy watching movies with my son and cats, Cookie & Tiger (Yes, they like movie time too!).  I am an avid meditator, dancer, lover of culture, and a social justice advocate.

Please watch this brief video to learn more about me and why I am passionate about health equity.
