About the Event
Webinar Description: The webinar presenter, Ngozi Joe-Ikechebelu, will discuss her research experience working in British Columbia with Sub-Saharan African Women Living with HIV (SSAWLH). She will also explore barriers and opportunities for SSAWLH to lead their own research and how that reframes HIV prevention approaches. Ngozi’s experience will reflect on the topic of genuine community participation and of knowledge mobilization in research.

A sub-Saharan African woman, wife and mother from Nigeria, she currently volunteers her service to the Afro-Canadian Pacific Network (ACPNet) of BC; a sub-Saharan African community in Surrey.
