2nd Annual Columbia Street Lecture
October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Monica R. McLemore RN, MPH, PhD, FAAN is a tenured professor in the Child, Family, and Population Health Department and the Interim Director for the Center for Anti-Racism in Nursing at the University of Washington School of Nursing. She retired from clinical practice as a public health and staff nurse after a 28-year clinical nursing career in 2019, however, continues to provide flu and COVID-19 vaccines. Her research is focused on reproductive justice. Her peer reviewed articles, OpEds and commentaries have been cited in five amicus briefs to the Supreme Court of the United States and three NASEM reports. She became Editor in Chief of Health Equity in 2022.
The purpose of the lecture is to inspire, interrogate, and explore the ideas at the nexus of medicine, nursing, and public health, and to spur actions that move these ideas forward together.
The Columbia Street Lecture is inspired by the main north/south corridor through campus. Columbia Street separates the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health at UNC. For several decades, medical, nursing, and public health faculty and students have crossed Columbia Street to bring the two fields together. This lecture celebrates those who helped bring together these worlds at UNC Chapel Hill.
