Health Inequalities and our Canadian Youth: who is vulnerable and how can we close the gaps?

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the importance and impact of long-standing health inequalities to the forefront.
Through panel presentations, using health inequalities findings from the national and international Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) survey and the Pan-Canadian Health Inequalities Reporting Initiative, this seminar will present the state of the science and provide opportunity for discussion on key principles for action and promising practices that can be adapted to advance health equity of youth within the Canadian context.
This presentation will take place virtually and pre-registration is required to participate via WebEx. (Registration password = 5165).
