Filling in the puzzle of a social justice framework for crtical health research: Lessons learned from Iris Young and Paulo Freire by Dr. Sannie Tang
Sannie Tang received her Bachelor degree in nursing from the University of Manchester in England, and completed both her Master’s and PhD degrees in nursing at the University of British Columbia in Canada. As an immigrant woman of color who sometimes still gets reminded that she speaks English ‘with an accent,’ Sannie is interested in issues that concern access to health and healthcare for racialized social groups, including how race and racism operate to reproduce social and health/healthcare inequities in the everyday. Moreover, Sannie feels a commitment to participate in the larger project of social justice in her capacity as a critical health researcher and nurse educator. Her most recent research is a qualitative study that examines how social justice education is perceived and implemented in nursing. Sannie is currently working as an assistant professor in the School of Nursing at York University.
