As the granddaughter of Pan-Africanists Marcus Mosiah Garvey and Amy Jacques Garvey, Nzinga Garvey proudly continues the tradition of ‘faithful service’ to elevate our collective consciousness and celebrate our collective humanity. The Garvey legacy has left an indelible mark as evidenced by the global internalization of Black Pride, Black Excellence, Black Power and Black Beauty.
Ms. Garvey’s career path is one of fearless transitions leading her to be a substantive agent of change in the behavioral health space. Ms. Garvey currently serves as General Manager at LivingWell (a business unit of UrgentPoint Medical Group) that specializes in the delivery of hybrid medical and psychiatric services to support the unmet health and wellness needs of behavioral/mental health patients. In this role, she works collaboratively with addiction, integrative and functional medicine specialists; forging a new healthcare experience committed to whole-person care. Ms. Garvey remains committed to the use of technology as a means to enhance the patient experience and to deliver increased measured health outcomes.
Throughout her career, Ms Garvey has lent her talents to serve humanitarian interests that included working with Bono and ONE to launch a social media incubator to combat energy poverty, Akon and Samsung Africa to launch Smart Health, a mobile health and wellness app focused on providing accurate baseline information on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria as well as Peace One Day (Peace Day concert in Goma, Congo on September 21, 2014) to engage a global community in its celebration and observance of sustained peace (the televised/streamed concert reached 65 million+ global viewers).
Most recently, Ms. Garvey is working with McGill University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences on a signature program initiative, One Health, designed to address healthcare disparities by providing scholarships and other needed resources to POC medical students. In addition, One Health will mold the academic curriculum to include extensive training that develops more culturally competent/sensitive healthcare providers.
