Health Equity in Waterloo Wellington – Twitter Chat

#WWEquityChat @WWLHIN

Addressing health equity and population health is one of our key objectives as we work to provide an integrated, high quality health system for the residents of Waterloo Wellington.

In order to support that work, raise awareness and encourage conversation about how to address these issues, the Waterloo Wellington LHIN hosted a Twitter chat focused on health equity on October 30, 2015. The event focused on encouraging conversations about the difference between equity and equality and brainstorming ideas for how to address these issues in our local community. Learn more about health equity here.
We’d like to thank our featured participants and many other community members who joined the conversation for taking the time to provide their ideas and for sharing some amazing resources for improving health equity in Waterloo Wellington.
