On the 31st episode of our series, we speak with Richard Budgell, newly appointed Professor of Practice of Inuit and Northern Health Promotion in the Department of Family Medicine at McGill University.
Richard discusses with us the social-historical context of COVID-19 and how histories can reveal significant gaps in pandemic responses to inform future policies and practices for Inuit communities and northern populations.
On the 30th episode of our series, we continue our conversation with Elene Lam, Executive Director of Butterfly - Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network.
This time around, Elene is joined by Alice Cavanagh of Health Providers Against Poverty (HPAP). Through advocacy, education, and patient care, HPAP is working to eliminate poverty and reduce health inequities in Canada. The network has provincial chapters in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Laborador.
