Foundations Series

Educational Activities That Enrich

The EqHS Foundations Series is a dialogical space to introduce, discuss and interrogate the current understandings and applications of equity-related concepts and practices as they take place in the healthcare space. The syllabus focuses on the social determinants of health (SDOH) as a framework for understanding differential outcomes for differently resourced populations.

During these monthly sessions, selected presenters will critically discuss two relevant pieces of scholarship and/or policy documents to the audience. The session facilitators and presenters then will engage in a dialogue with the audience as they interrogate the concepts and their application in healthcare spaces.
