About the Events

LSBU are incredibly privileged to be hosting an ‘In conversation with…’ event with Dame Elizabeth Anionwu – and you’re invited to come & hear Dame Elizabeth discuss her new book ‘Dreams From My Mother‘ & her life with our very own Professor Calvin Moorley, Chair of Diversity & Social Justice in LSBU’s Institute of Health & Social Care.

Accurately hailed as one of the UK’s greatest ever nurses, Dame Elizabeth’s moving & inspiring story addresses issues of race, culture, identity, family, hope and much more. From her childhood to her political awakening and becoming the first ever sickle cell nurse specialist, Dame Elizabeth ‘s recent work has focused on the impact of COVID-19 on Black & Asian Communities. In addition to her extensive & impressive career, Dame Elizabeth is also a Pride of Britain awardee and one of the BBC’s 100 Women of the Year 2020.
