We want to hear your stories!
The CHAIM Centre will be publishing articles written by Carleton students in recognition of Black History Month. We are now accepting submissions for brief (500-700 word) blog-style articles that focus on issues related to Black health and wellness in Canada. These stories could include social and environmental determinants, health promotion, health inequities, strengths and resilience, in addition to opportunities for change. We welcome personal style articles.
Our goal is to raise awareness about health and wellness in relation to ethno-racial groups. We recognize that Black people face disproportionate health disparities and that race matters in health research. This is an opportunity to amplify these issues through your voice.
The CHAIM Centre will select the 3 most compelling articles to be published on our website. They will be assessed on quality of writing, argument strength, and key messaging. If you cite sources or use interviews in your blog, please include the full citation at the end of your document. The deadline for submissions is February 24th.
