Justine Ang Fonte, M.Ed, MPH

2021 Keynote Speaker - Justine Ang Fonte, M.Ed, MPH

Justine Ang Fonte is a daughter of Philippine immigrants, health educator, producer, and Californian-born New Yorker. She is the founder and Director of Health & Wellness at The Dalton School, a K-12 independent school in New York City. As a nationally-recognized speaker, Justine also works as a consultant to both public and private institutions across the United States on social justice-based health education and is a speaker to thousands of school and university communities.

Even with all of the knowledge of what is healthy, health is not experienced equally due to the ways gender, race, orientation, religion, ability, body type, age, socioeconomic status privileges or marginalizes people in our current society. Thus, Justine’s educational philosophy is that health must be taught through an intersectional lens which means including the various social identities we carry in our learning that impact our access to health. This is the responsibility of comprehensive health education and it is social justice education. Justine's pedagogy empowers those she teaches with the medically-accurate information and compassion to exercise agency, practice empathy, achieve equity, and obtain care.

Outside of schools, she is also the co-creator of Raised Pinay, a original storytelling production of Filipina women whose beneficiary is Roots of Health, a reproductive health non-profit in the Philippines of which she sits as Vice President of the Board.

Justine received a Bachelor’s in Psychology from UC San Diego where she also captained the Women’s Tennis Team. She received a Master's in Education from the University of Hawai`i and her Master's in Public Health from Columbia University. In her self-care time, Justine is known as "Your Friendly Ghostwriter" on Instagram, where she designs customized text message templates to break up or set a boundary with someone in your life. And when she's not ghostwriting, she is baking up new recipes while watching reruns of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
