Webinar 4: Addressing Inequities during a Pandemic – November 26th 12:00pm – 1:00pm

During a state of global pandemic, health promotion plays an important role in ensuring equitable access to care, information, resources and services. The collection of race-based data in Ontario has highlighted the unequal distribution of COVID-19 in the public. Other populations such as low income and homeless and transient individuals, are also at greater risk of contracting COVID-19, experiencing worse health effects, losing their jobs, and having challenges accessing care.
