What is health equity? What does health equity look like in older adult populations? Please join us for our health equity webinar series to learn about the practical applications of health equity in healthcare.
Equity means fairness. Health equity means everyone has a fair opportunity to attain the best health possible for them. When we think about equity for older adults, the very first issue we need to address is ageism. Negative stereotypes about aging are pervasive in our society and research shows they can impact health outcomes in older adults. Come learn how we can identify, address, and combat ageism in healthcare.

Part 1, entitled “Preparing our future – Why ageism affects us all” is presented by Alekhya Johnson, MPH, & Sangita Singh, O.T. Reg. (Ont.)
