Today We Might Save a Life: Conversations about Racial Equity, Justice and the Canadian Healthcare System
Speaker: Notisha Massaquoi, Health Equity Consultant, former Executive Director, Women’s Health in Women’s Hands
There is clear evidence that disparities in access to health care and successful outcomes are strikingly different for racialized communities in Canada. There is a pressing need for us to name racism as a specific barrier for racialized communities in our health care system. Our ability to engage in a discussion of racism and racial equity in healthcare will not only ensure optimal service provision and quality care but the preservation of racialized lives.
