Speaker Profile

 Biography
Dr. Black did her medical school and OB/Gyn residency training at the university of Manitoba, at a time when almost everyone was using hormone therapy. She has worked much of her career with marginalized women in the inner city, and has worked with the Manitoba HIV team as their Ob/Gyn consultant. She has also served as director of the post-­-graduate residency training program in Ob/Gyn, and has been an examiner with the Royal College. These twilight days in her career are spent practicing part -­time and educating and advocating full-­-time. Priorities include mentoring and assisting younger colleagues with their ongoing education; promotion of excellence in practice through continued education; and trying to undo the WHI, one patient encounter at a time.
