Fatimah Jackson-Best is a healthcare researcher, advocate, and academic. Since relocating to Barbados from Toronto, Canada she has become involved in research studies at the University of the West Indies and with local and regional organizations. Most recently she initiated her own PhD research project which focuses on Caribbean women's maternal health and explores how women in Barbados experience the baby blues and postpartum depression. Fatimah believes that we all have the right to good physical, spiritual and mental health.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
