Please note: The Inclusive Health Conference 2023 has passed.


Building Communities through Inclusive Health conference will offer a unique opportunity to consider inclusive health challenges from three perspectives:

  • Clinical experience
  • Community
  • Academic research in science, social sciences, and arts and humanities

Throughout this two-day event, we will hear from clinicians, scholars, and community leaders, and discuss how to bridge health inequities experienced by many in the Scarborough community and marginalized populations nationwide. This ‘tri-perspective’ will provide a richer and more complex understanding of the interaction of social conditions and health, as well as their implications for achieving a more resilient and equitable health system.

Building Communities through Inclusive Health will appeal to:

  • Healthcare professionals
  • Clinicians
  • Researchers
  • Leaders from all health disciplines, as well as anyone with an interest in addressing healthcare inequities
  • Higher education institutions offering health human resource programs
  • Changemakers in the health sector such as hospital leaders, Ontario Health Team partners, and leaders of family health teams

Together, let’s build a knowledge and innovation ecosystem that will strengthen our communities.
