Overcoming Barriers to Healthcare for Immigrant Women in Toronto: Language, Culture & Long Work Days
Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the Frontlines of Health is an eye-opening exhibit of stories and images that form a narrative map of the people, organizations and communities that make up the frontlines of health in Canada.
Language, culture and long working days make it difficult for many immigrant women to access mainstream healthcare. A health clinic on wheels with culturally diverse staff members delivers care right to their workplaces in downtown Toronto.
The Immigrant Women’s Health Centre – overcoming invisible barriers. Finding new ways to provide access to vulnerable populations is just one of many stories celebrated in Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the frontlines of health, on display at the Canadian Public Health Association’s Centenary conference.
Join us at the reception which will feature remarks from leading frontline health practitioners and will be held on:
Monday, June 14, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: A limited number of invitations are available for members of the public to view the exhibit and attend a special reception taking place at the Canadian Public Health Association Centenary Conference. Be sure to RSVP to email@example.com for an opportunity to attend this special event.
The exhibit is presented by AstraZeneca Canada’s Frontline Health Program, which supports the work of the dedicated health professionals who serve Canada’s most vulnerable populations.
