About the Event

The Health Equity Summit is a recognizable event that addresses health-related disparities, particularly those affecting South Asians and other racialized communities. This year’s Summit plans to address the concerns with reopening society after months of social isolation. The Summit will provide an opportunity for public health professionals, community leaders, researchers, academics, social-service providers, and decision-makers alike to demonstrate our collective capacity to improve health equity in ongoing and future public health crises.
