Our colleagues Willy Dunbar and Val Morrison, Scientific Advisors at the NCCHPP, will share their expertise and spark discussion on health inequalities during a presentation entitled Health Inequalities in Public Health Crises: How COVID-19 Impacted Existing Inequalities during the Metropolis Social Determinants of Health Conference that will be held on October 2-3, 2023, in Gatineau.

In their panel, they will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic exposed and exacerbated health inequalities by disproportionately affecting underserved populations, resulting in syndemic conditions. Their review aims to explore the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities, highlight the burden faced by these communities, and explore the interconnectedness of the social determinants of health. Their panel is scheduled for Monday, October 2, at 11:00 a.m.

The Metropolis Conference will bring together experts from multiple disciplines to share knowledge, expertise and insights on the lessons learned from COVID-19 pandemic. To consult the conference program, click here.
