Event Details

As we wait for pharmacare, large numbers of people cannot access prescription medication. In this session, speakers offer guidance around navigating the patchwork of programs and options available in Ontario to help access prescription medications. We will also explore what health care providers, frontline workers and individuals can do to promote policy change. We will leave time for discussion so people can share their experiences with accessing prescription medication.

Hosted by: The Centre Talks committee of the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael’s Hospital and the Academic Family Health Team at St. Michael’s Hospital.
