Event description
The 2021 Anti-Oppression in Health Care and Sciences Symposium will showcase presentations by learners at the U of T Faculty of Medicine.

About this Event

Join us in challenging oppressive and exclusionary social, institutional, and structural factors that create barriers, and in highlighting resiliency of patients and learners from marginalized communities. Together we will create pathways to more inclusive spaces in health-related education and increase health equity.
