Nurse Cathy Crowe devotes her career to “taking the pulse” of community health issues affecting low-income people, including shelter conditions and inadequate housing, the return of tuberculosis, discrimination, and a high mortality rate.
She will discuss the achievements and on-going struggles of her work in a free public presentation entitled “Nursing for Social Justice: Fighting for the Right to a Home,” Friday, November 7, at 12:30 p.m. in the parish hall of All Saints’ Anglican Church.
The event is part of the Distinguished Visitors in Women’s Studies series, and co-sponsored by the Faculty of Nursing.
Crowe is the subject of the documentary film Street Nurse by Shelley Saywell, and has fostered numerous coalitions and enterprises that have achieved significant public policy victories. Her current campaign is to have housing recognized as a human right.
All Saints’ Church is located at 330 City Hall Square West.
