Amoy Jacques, R.Kin, MPH

Amoy Jacques works as a Public Health Researcher and Registered Kinesiologist and currently utilizes a population-centered and cultural humility approach to treat chronic diseases.  Amoy believes her true calling to marginalized women.  This desire to see women in her community thrive was met with her personal experiences with uterine fibroids and endometriosis and struggles with infertility.  Her frustration with the fragmented healthcare system, under-representation in research, and limited access to culturally competent healthcare providers was the catalyst for her next dream projects.  The Womb Health Study and the WombCare Clinic are the innovative drivers to see Black, Indigenous and women of colour empowered during their reproductive years

Joanne Ukposidolo, MSc. PT

Joanne Ukposidolo is a Registered Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist with a passion for treating symptoms of uterine fibroids and endometriosis as well as delivering pre and post-natal care.  Her mission in life is to create positive, direct and generational impact by empowering women to take control of their reproductive health. Joanne values compassion and cultural humility and believes that community is key in the comprehensive management of pelvic floor dysfunctions. As an empathetic healthcare provider, Joanne understands that there is a significant discrepancy in how healthcare is experienced amongst communities. As a founder at WombCare Clinic, she is honored and privileged to provide high quality accessible healthcare to the BIPOC community.
