Uché Blackstock

Founder and CEO, Advancing Health Equity

A former emergency medicine physician and twin sister of Oni, Blackstock crusades to raise rates of Covid-19 vaccine distribution and rapid testing in Black and Latino communities, while also pushing for free masks and federal, state, and local policies to broaden mask mandates. Citing a “fear of retaliation for being vocal about racism and sexism” at her former workplace, NYU’s School of Medicine, she left in 2019 to found Advancing Health Equity, which trains health care organizations to recognize and dismantle systemic racism and health inequities.
