The Intersection of Racial Justice and Advocacy; Lessons from 2020 

Speaker: Jacqueline Boyd, Owner, The Care Plan


Jacqueline Boyd, Founder of The Care Plan 

Jacqueline Boyd is a long time aging specialist and LGBTQ advocate. Jacqueline’s passion for health and aging started when she was a Certified Nursing Assistant in college. Working in nursing homes gave her a deep appreciation for the struggles many faces throughout the aging process. The swift physical and cognitive changes, the lack of clear resources, and advice left many families in the dark about how to best support their loved ones, and at times guilty for the choices they had made.

Jacqueline spent much of her professional career providing care management services in her 9 years with a private duty caregiving agency. Providing guidance and advocacy for people in need illuminated time and again the necessity for earlier interventions and planning.  She founded the Care Plan to provide a comprehensive approach to address inequities for the LGBTQ as well as those of color.

Overview:

This interactive CE webinar will open the door to an honest conversation to address the changing landscape of case management in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and the death of George Floyd which triggered protests around the world as people took to the streets in a show of unity against the unambiguous act of injustice to people of color.  Together we will discuss how the pandemic has exposed racial disparities within our healthcare systems and share how advocacy practices to effectively support Black, Latinx, Asian-American, and American Indian/Alaska Native clients can improve the quality of care provided across the care continuum.

Ms. Boyd will also provide resources to combat racism on a personal and organizational level to help you create more welcoming and culturally affirming organizations. You are encouraged to bring your questions and lessons learned to share with your colleagues. The voices of Black, Latinx, Asian-American, and American Indian/Alaska Native practitioners will be centered in this workshop.
