NCCDH Webinar: Informing public health programs through engagement with communities that live with health inequities

PHESC's podcast series on community engagement is now in production! We're happy to see and promote this complementary webinar by the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health.

September 19, 2019 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. (EDT)
This event will take place in English.

Community engagement is an important step towards understanding the unique circumstances facing populations living with inequities. This is especially true when considering these communities’ opportunities and barriers to achieving health. Having authentic and ongoing relationships with communities that experience marginalization – beyond one-time engagement events or client satisfaction – requires eliminating processes and practices that make decisions for those communities without their direct and meaningful involvement.
