Health equity, determinants of health and COVID-19: Conversation 4

Wednesday, April 22, 2020 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm
Location: Free online webinar requiring registration
Event Type: Presentation

This event will take place in English. It will also feature closed captioning and simultaneous American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.

 

Join us on April 22, 2020, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. (ET) for a conversation on community impacts and responses related to food insecurity, disability and ethics.

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, it follows and amplifies lines of existing inequities. We recognize that you, our friends and colleagues in the public health community, are being called to go above and beyond, whether from your home office or on the frontlines.

To support equity-informed responses, the NCCDH is hosting a series of community conversations on the topic. This is an opportunity for the public health field to explore equity-informed responses through action on the social and structural determinants of health. The conversation will connect practitioners with each other, and provide an opportunity to share experiences, resources, questions and solutions-focused ideas.

Frequency

Conversations will be held weekly throughout April 2020. We will continue to monitor the evolving situation and adapt our response.

Speakers

  • Sume Ndumbe-Eyoh, Senior Knowledge Translation Specialist, NCCDH
  • Dr. Valerie Tarasuk, Professor, University of Toronto; Founding Investigator, PROOF (food insecurity)
  • Nelly Bassily, Manager of the Youth Initiatives and International Relationships, DisAbled Women’s Network Canada (DAWN) (girls and young women with disabilities)
