Webinar: Health equity in the field: Reflections for students and early career professionals

In partnership with the Ontario Public Health Association New Professionals Network

The goal of the webinar is to introduce public health students and early career professionals to health equity practice in the field. The webinar offers participants insight into everyday health equity practice through a focus on real life experiences of public health practitioners.

After the webinar participants will be able to

  1. describe everyday health equity practice in different organizational contexts;
  2. identify how to integrate health equity into their everyday public health practice even in roles which do not have an explicit equity/SDH mandate; and
  3. generate examples of how to demonstrate leadership as students and early career professionals.
