The Elephant in the Room: The Impact of Poverty on Health 3:00 pm
The Elephant in the Room: The Impact of Poverty on Health @ Beacon Harbourside Resort
Nov 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
A workshop and afternoon symposium focused on sharing and learning about poverty and health. We hope that participants will be able to understand the impact of poverty and homelessness on health, become aware of effective interventions, and grow their awareness of initiatives in Niagara to improve the health of vulnerable populations. Guest speaker Dr. Naheed Dosani will discuss his work in the Greater Toronto Area improving palliative care services for people experiencing homelessness, and lessons learned that can be applied to Niagara. There will also be a panel presentation and Q&A involving representatives from Niagara Region Community Services, Start Me Up Niagara, Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, and a community advocate with lived experience. Register online or RSVP by email by October 29, 2018. This event is hosted by REACH Niagara.

Measuring Health Inequalities: A Toolkit 12:00 pm
Measuring Health Inequalities: A Toolkit @ Online
Nov 28 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm
There is great interest in reducing health inequities in Canada. However, health organizations vary in their capacity to generate and use reliable and relevant data to inform action and to monitor progress towards achieving a more equitable health system. In October 2018, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) released Measuring Health Inequalities: A Toolkit. The Health Equity Impact Assessment Community of Interest developed this toolkit to assist analysts and researchers with measuring and reporting on health inequalities with a focus on stratifying health indicators. The toolkit consists of a set of guidelines and resources designed to help you plan your analysis, analyze your data and report your findings. This webinar is hosted by the Health Equity Impact Assessment (HEIA) Community of Interest.
