Dr. Roberta Timothy is an Assistant professor in the Teaching Stream at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. She has over 30 years experience working in community health. She brings an intersectional, critical race framework to her research. Dr. Timothy is intrinsically linked to Black transnational (global) communities as she prioritizes a critical pan-African feminist health framework in all her research, teaching, and community endeavours.  Resistance education, a creative methodology developed and practiced by Dr. Timothy, ensures that all her research is led by and for Black communities from an empowerment-centred, emancipatory framework. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Timothy recently co-organized the first Canada-wide forum discussing COVID-19 impact on African/Black communities in Canada. Her insights in relation to the need for COVID-19 research and programs with African/Black communities in Canada and globally has been broadcasted across Canada on TV and in newspapers. Check out for more information on her work.
