IHSP Policy Talks Webinar
Remapping the Social Determinants of Health & Wellbeing: Childhood Neurodisability, Ecosocial Theory, and the Future of SDOH
Dr. Lucyna Lach, Associate Professor, Social Work; member of the Centre for Research on Children and Families & Institute for Health and Social Policy , McGill University.
Dr. Angela Marques Filipe, CIHR Fellow, Wenner-Gren Writing Fellow; affiliate member of the Division of Transcultural Psychiatry, McGill University.
While much has been already said about the social determinants of health (SDoH) framework, little is known about its challenges and potentials in the context of childhood neurodisability, where questions of wellbeing, neurodiversity, and social justice take centre stage. The webinar explores these questions in light of current debates and of an ecosocial, research-action oriented framework that is relevant to families, practitioners, advocates, and decision-makers, both in times of COVID-19 and beyond.
