Black Domers: Black Well-being

“Recent events in our nation have led to a national reckoning, to soul-searching and a demand for action with regard to racial and social injustice…There is a widespread sense of urgency to come together, to take meaningful action to achieve a more just and equitable society. Accompanying the urgency is a sense of hope that now is the moment for constructive and lasting change.” – Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Notre Dame: A Strategic Framework, June 2021

Black health and wellness may look different for each person, but having a community in which one can be listened to, cared for, and advocated for is essential for everyone. Learn how self care and community care intersect to enable us to live the most fulfilling lives possible while we share our time in the world and embrace generations of culture, diversity, and history.

Our panel features appearances by Tiffani Tatum ’01 Student Recruitment Director of the Black Alumni of Notre Dame and Pat Parks ’01 Student Relations Director of the Black Alumni of Notre Dame, and a discussion with moderator Dr. LaKesha Legree, M.D. ’99, founder and CEO of Dr. Legree and Associates Medical Expert Services Firm, Kimmi Martin Troy ’00 SMC, certified Health and Wellness Coach, and Wendy Whitsett MC, LPC, CPC ’08, Licensed Professional Counselor & Clinical Professional Counselor.
