Dr. Olga Idriss Davis is passionate about enhancing communication to improve the health and well-being of under-served populations. She is a disciplinary leader in critical cultural studies that explore identity and power and in health literacy. Her work centers on narrative discourse—how humans create identity and co-construct their world through the nature of telling stories. Most importantly, her methodology is grounded in community-based participatory approaches, which are used to explore the nature of health disparities and the role of health literacy, with the goal of achieving an equitable and healthy future for all communities.
