When it comes to race-based research and data, the healthcare sector is severely lacking. The result? Persistent, systemic disparities that are putting the lives, health and well-being of Black Canadians at risk. 

Join leading Toronto health experts and advocates on October 6 for an in-depth panel discussion about why research focused on the unique needs of Black women and their health is vitally important, and to learn how Women’s College Hospital is leading the way when it comes to closing gaps in healthcare for the Black community.  

This online webinar is free of charge.
