About the COVID-19 Prevention in Communities Rounds
These rounds are organized by the Women’s College Hospital
Community Response Team and Centre for Wise Practices in Indigenous
Health with the goal of discussing and sharing the latest evidence
that can inform testing and COVID-19 prevention in the community. In
these rounds, we are committed to honouring diverse sources and
traditions of knowledge and understanding in health and healing. We
also hope to strategize together and share evidence and experience
to support communities most impacted by COVID-19, as well as discuss
combined advocacy strategies to increase access to POC testing for
racialized and low -income communities.
We look forward to joining you in discussion!
