PhD student Unifier Dyer is the recipient of a Mellon Public Humanities Fellowship. Dyer’s nine-month residency involves partnering with The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness (FFBWW) as a Communications Fellow.
FFBWW is committed to mobilizing African American women to pursue and sustain mind-body-spirit wellness, and to raise the visibility and support of Black women’s health as a community and public health priority. As a fellow, Dyer will work with the leadership team to develop, implement, and manage an organizational communications portfolio to boost targeted branding and marketing capacity of FFBWW.
Mellon Public Humanities Fellowships give students the opportunity to use their humanities experience and expertise to develop new programs, expand existing ones, and translate their academic skills into the public sphere.
