CHEPA has hosted a series of special seminars this year, in addition to its regular monthly events. The presentations covered a range of health policy topics, and can now be viewed on the Seminar Series page of the CHEPA website.
Three of the special seminars were presented on behalf of the CHEPA-Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Chair in Health Equity.
The presenters were:
