Social Justice after COVID: Re-imagining a More Just and Sustainable World

Social Justice After COVID Panel Series: Re-imagining a More Just and Sustainable World
In order to deepen public understanding of the health dimensions of the current crisis, the panel will address public access to healthcare and social justice issues associated with COVID-19, as well as the insecurity of the broader system that this pandemic makes more visible.
Presenters, including analysts and activists of the health care system and physicians from Canada and the US, will discuss how they see COVID affecting their community and/or area/region of research, including how health care cuts or insufficient access to publicly funded medicine and employment insecurity influence our healthcare systems’ ability to respond.
