DSA Health Equity Series: Rural & Remote Health
Presenters: Dr. Roger Strasser & Dr. Sarah Strasser

Rural and Remote Health: Community Engagement Towards a Fit-for-Purpose Rural Workforce

This month the Division of Social Accountability directs its attention to rural and remote health. In April of 2022, the DSA office spent time in consultation with community partners and heard that the lack of services in rural and remote areas continues to have an adverse impact on their services and on the lives of the people they serve. In our province, where half of our population lives outside of large urban centre, the impacts of these health inequities continues to grow. How do we train physicians that can contribute to policy decisions that advance health equity in our province? The DSA believes that it is through genuine engagement with community stakeholders and advocates, and leveraging the concerns of faculty, students, and staff that we can respond to the complex challenges of being a socially accountable organization in a province with rapidly changing needs. Join us for our Health Equity Webinar Series on January 27th where we hear from Dr. Sarah Strasser, Emeritus Professor of Rural Health University of Waikato, New Zealand and Dr. Roger Strasser, Emeritus Professor of Rural Health University of Waikato, New Zealand and Founding Dean Emeritus Northern Ontario School of Medicine where they will share their extensive experience using community engagement to build a fit-for-purpose rural workforce.
