Recap: 14th Annual Health Symposium

On Saturday, February 25th we hosted our 14th Annual Health Symposium at the University of Toronto. We were in person for the first time since 2020 and it was so energizing to be in the same room with so many like-minded, passionate professionals.

We had an incredible line up of speakers who were able to contribute to robust conversations of matters of health and how they impact communities.

We opened up the space for medical students, physicians, community members and the public to gather and discuss issues of health impacting Canadians, and ACB communities even more specifically.

“It was so productive, and honestly motivating to be in that kind of space. It was long overdue and the conversations in there were so generative. I left feeling grateful and motivated by conversations that were had,” said Chenai Kadungure, Executive Director of the BPAO.

We are looking ahead with hope for a year that allows us to gather again, connect, and celebrate our victories together as community.
