The session was co-hosted by Education Committee co-chairs:

  • Shain Mergulhao – incoming ON Branch CIPHI President and a supervisor in the Peel region, Ontario

  • Keep our collegiality, connection, and community thriving while harnessing the power of our social cohesiveness.

The session was structured as follows:

  • Three medical health officer panelists’ reflections on their pandemic experience and highlight aspects of health equity

  • Audience engagement with panelists on:
    • Lesson learned around health equity
    • Potential barriers within their diverse communities
