In 1883, Anandibai Joshee, a young woman from a small city in western India arrived in Roselle, New Jersey. She had traveled thousands of miles, overcoming incredible physical and emotional hardships. She arrived with a purpose and eventually became the first South Asian woman in the world with a degree in western medicine. South Asians have been a presence in the US for more than 130 years, but their stories are mostly unknown. In this session, participants will engage in an interactive discussion about underrepresented populations, specifically examining South Asians, and how sharing community stories can help create a more inclusive future.
Come join us for a special presentation from Samip Mallick, Co-Founder and Executive Director of SAADA, as we examine and celebrate these missing stories from our shared experience.
