WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Saint Barnabas Medical Center
Tyree conducted an excellent presentation on the intersectionality within the LGBTQ Community in September 2019 at Saint Barnabas Medical Center located in Livingston, New Jersey. She is knowledgeable and engaging. I am inviting her to come back in 2020 to speak again to a larger audience. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Tyree is an extraordinary trainer and educator. I had the pleasure of having Dr. Tyree conduct several trainings for my staff with regards to the LGBTQ and Transgender community. The passion and knowledge left a lasting impression on all of the staff. We all came out of these trainings better educated and equipped to help a population that many overlook. We thank you for your expertise and willingness to help those in need. Our understanding and purpose for helping the LGBTQ community was increased tremendously by your guidance and ability to connect with your audience.
"I first met Tyree while she was with Garden State Equality and she gave a keynote address during a training for corporations. She was engaging, educational, made people feel comfortable and challenged their beliefs at the same time. I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. Later, we were in need of a speaker to deliver a workshop in a new and unique way. Tyree delivered multiple workshops back-to-back to a cross-section of hospital administrators, senior management, doctors, nurses, nurse managers, registrars, patient transport, dietary, unit secretaries, social workers and other employees. The presentation was engaging, disarming, educational, and met people where they were, while showing them where they needed to be to deliver culturally humble care to patients. Many attendees asked to have her come back to deliver future trainings and workshops."
The presentation was upbeat, educational, and fun.
The presentation and your energy was AMAZING! I loved it so much!
Dr. Oredein was super nice and inviting/welcoming, and had a very interesting presentation that I really enjoyed.
The presenter was great, she was very funny and I appreciated how she cracked some jokes to lighten the mood while we talked about some tougher/heavier subjects
I loved it! I would sit through another presentation of hers and her use of pop culture to relate to the topics that were being discussed was engaging and helped as well!

"Your informative and thought-provoking presentation made it possible for our leadership team to engage with highly sensitive, important topics.
An indication of the impact that you had on our work is the fact that we had a follow-up discussion at our March administrative cabinet meeting that was spirited and likewise thought-provoking. While I am sure we still have room for growth, your workshop was an excellent catalyst for our professional development in the area of equity.
Thanks again for your leadership"
