In Honor of #WomensHistoryMonth, we are highlighting incredible women at Partners in Care Foundation who are making strides to make a positive difference in their communities. Dominique Addison is a Partners’ Care Coordinator in the Enhanced Care Management (ECM) Department and passionate about women’s rights and equality as well as issues that affect low-income and communities of color. She is currently getting her Master’s in Public Health at Azusa Pacific University.
Dominique grew up in a community where people are not vocal about mental health, inequalities, or injustices that they have witnessed or experienced, so she strives to be the voice for change and bring awareness to these issues.
Dominque volunteers with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is an active mental health advocate that sees the importance of properly educating the community to overcome the stigma of mental illness. She is also a part of the women’s march foundation that fights for gender justice and women’s rights and Dominique is especially passionate about women’s reproductive rights. She noticed that many women are afraid to speak up about their health issues out of fear of being “dismissed”, “ignored, or “judged”. She attends Women’s marches and rallies to advocate for those struggling in silence and to bring attention to legislative leaders to properly address these concerns.
Dominique is passionate about education, learning about the world and how to create a better and safer place for those in need. Dominque is currently working on starting her own podcast to share her knowledge with others around the world! We are proud to have such an active member of the community a part of Partners in Care Foundation and cannot wait to see all that Dominique will accomplish in the future.
