Life Sciences Ontario invites you to a conversation on Vaccine and Healthcare Access on June 24. The COVID 19 pandemic has put a spotlight on the inequities in our healthcare system.  Individuals who have been essential to protecting us and keeping our supply chains open during the pandemic have often been members of communities most impacted by the pandemic and the inequities in the healthcare system.  As we emerge from the pandemic, how do we repair trust within these communities and ensure equitable access to healthcare for all Ontarians? Panelists will explore these inequities, their root causes and the changes needed to achieve a more inclusive, equitable and accessible healthcare system for all.
