Take a Health Professional to the People Day (TADay) is the University of Pittsburgh Center for Health Equity's health promotion and disease prevention initiative in partnership with African American-owned and -operated barbershops in several Pittsburgh communities. Health professionals (including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, nutritionists, health science students), public health educators, and health organizations volunteer their time to provide screening services and health education in the barbershops.TADay takes place in April in recognition of National Minority Health Month.
The Critical Public Health journal club seeks to spark critical and reflexive conversations with attention to deeper social and historical, 'unintended consequences' of intervention and research, and dynamics of power. We will also seek to identify alternative frameworks to enact in research and practice. Interdisciplinary and open to all!
