Presented by: Uppala Chandrasekera, Director of Public Policy, Canadian Mental Health Association Ontario
Those of us who work in health care often believe that because we are part of a helping profession, we are immune to discrimination. Yet discrimination persists – it impacts service users, service providers, organizations and the entire health care system.
This lecture will explore the causes and impacts of discrimination on mental health and identify opportunities and resources for addressing discrimination at an individual, organizational and systems level.
This event is free and open to the Brock Community. Faculty and students are encouraged to attend.
The Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Lecture Series: Promoting Racial Justice in Health Care is named in memory of a first-year Medical Sciences student who died in the service of another in 2017. Yosif had dreams of becoming a doctor and hoped to one day make a difference in the world.
This event is hosted by Brock University.
