The question of what qualifies as “healthy” food is highly contested in healthcare and beyond.
This webinar will bring together varying perspectives of dietitians, a chef and an Indigenous speaker for a rich discussion around how hospitals and health care facilities can lead the charge in expanding the definition of healthy food related to how it is produced, prepared and consumed which generates impacts on patient, population, and planetary health.
Join panelists: Joshna Maharaj, Take Back the Tray; Dr Janice Sorensen, Langara College; Diane Imrie, University of Vermont Medical Centre; and an Indigenous speaker (TBC); to explore ways to better connect food and health through the patient meal experience, food service operations, food environments, and making connections from health care settings into community.
This webinar is hosted by Nourish.
Breaking down the stigma of childhood disability through awareness and advocacy: The Dear Everybody Campaign
Disability stigma is a key barrier to living healthy and meaningful lives for children and youth with disabilities. Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital believes that, as a leader in pediatric care and research, it has a role in breaking down childhood disability stigma and advancing social justice.
This role goes beyond the health-care sector to other areas of young people’s lives, such as employment and education. With the aim of tackling disability biases and supporting meaningful inclusion, Holland Bloorview is carrying out a multi-faceted, multi-year public anti-stigma campaign, which was co-developed with young people with disabilities and their families.
This webinar will describe Holland Bloorview’s Dear Everybody anti-stigma campaign.
In the webinar, you will explore:
- equity barriers faced by people with disabilities, an important consideration in the use of the HEIA tool
- a public education mitigation strategy for addressing health and social inequities
This webinar is hosted by the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) Community of Interest.
