Race, Place & Waste: Exploring the Health Effects of Environmental Racism in African Nova Scotian & Mi'kmaw Communities

Please join Dalhousie's Dr. Ingrid Waldron as she talks about the Environmental Noxiousness, Racial Inequities and Community Health -- or ENRICH -- Project, which aims to understand the health effects of environmental racism in African Nova Scotian and Mi'qmak communities, and to support their struggles against it.

Ingrid will be engaging with theories of white settler colonialism, capitalism, and the racialization of space to explore the ways in which environmental racism and environmental health inequities manifest within broader socio-political structures in Nova Scotia. 

Global Health Rounds is a free public lecture series, focused on highlighting and discussing the global health activities at Dalhousie, as well as contemporary global health challenges with leaders in the field. These sessions are offered monthly, and anyone is welcome (and encouraged) to attend.
