On the 3/1/23 edition of Dr. Andy’s Poetry and Technology Hour:
Dr. Andy and his first guest, alien hunter and exhibit designer Hugh Mackenzie, take a conversational romp through all things paranormal, including the extensive paranormal entertainment offerings of the Encounters UFO Xperience pop-up museum in Davis. Later in the hour, we hear from UC Davis Associate Dean of Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Kupiri Ackerman-Barger about her work mitigating medical disparities, the practice of cultural humility, and building a bridge to readers when writing her book on health equity.
Piri Ackerman-Barger is associate dean for Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and a clinical professor at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. As associate dean for Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Ackerman-Barger leads the school’s efforts to create a diverse and welcoming setting in which to learn, work and collaborate. She also designs initiatives to make the school’s learning environments, workforce, programs, services and partnerships more diverse and inclusive.
Ackerman-Barger’s academic interests relate to health equity and social justice. She is a national consultant and speaker on strategies on mitigating health disparities and advancing health equity. She is currently writing a book about how nurses can advance health equity by using cultural humility as a framework for practice. It is from this work that she will be reading at Poetry Night.
