REPLAY: North End Matters, November 21 2012


Wednesday’s Guest:
Donna M. Smith Darrell
Co-chair, Health Association of African Canadians
This week’s North End Matters brings back Donna M. Smith Darrell, Co-chair
of the Health Association of African Canadians (HAAC). HAAC is a non-profit,
volunteer run organization of health professionals based in HRM. For more
than a decade, HAAC has been working to “promote and improve the health of
African Canadians in Nova Scotia through community engagement, education,
policy recommendations, partnerships, and research participation.”

Donna was born and raised in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and graduated from
Yarmouth Regional High. After graduating, she entered nursing at the Public
General Hospital in Chatham, Ontario and received a diploma in Nursing. She
obtained a Nurse Practitioner diploma from McMaster University and worked at
the IWK Health Centre for 26 years as the Coordinator of the Child
Development Clinic. During that time period, Donna was also a Lecturer in
the Department of Pediatrics at Dalhousie University. From 2002 to 2012,
Donna worked at Cancer Care Nova Scotia as the Diverse Communities Cancer
As a volunteer, Donna has been very busy in HRM. She has been the President
of the Nova Scotia Home for Coloured Children, and worked with the Junior
League of Halifax and the Epilepsy Association of Nova Scotia. Although she
is now retired, Donna has shown no signs of slowing down her compassionate
work. We’re very happy to have her on to discuss her work with HAAC.
