Description:

The 2019 Health Equity Summit, in partnership with Ryerson University's School of Nursing and the William Osler Health System in Brampton, is a recognizable event that addresses health issues and inequties, specifically ones affecting South Asians and other racialized communities.

This year's Summit will focus on gathering input on a health equity strategy from South Asian community members in the Greater Toronto Area and finding ways to engage the current government through research and advocacy. It will explore different aspects of health in the South Asian context through panel discussions and breakout sessions on related topics in mental, sexual, maternal, and chronic health, social determinants of health, best practices, policy, and advocacy.

Attendees will have an opportunity to voice their questions/concerns to a panel of stakeholders during a community feedback and input session which will help advance our South Asian Health Strategy.
