Dr. Cooper Owens is a historian who shares the power of history largely through stories. Her work on medical history and medical disparities in the US makes her a leading national authority on this topic. Her National Minority Health Month talk will remind us of the history that hasn’t always made our school textbooks and will inspire and empower us all to better understand how the past is always connected to the present. She is a popular speaker on our roster – with consistent feedback for her ability to deeply engage diverse audiences to great effect. As one of the country’s most “acclaimed experts in U.S. history,” according to Time Magazine, she is steadily working towards making history more accessible and inspiring for all.
