What Happens When The Homeless Get Sick?
Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the Frontlines of Health will showcase the innovative solution created by Sherbourne Health Centre to open an infirmary exclusively for the homeless and under-housed.
A doctor advises you to take your medication an hour before every meal and get plenty of bed rest.
But not if you have no bed to lie in and don’t know where your next meal is coming from. The solution at Sherbourne Health Centre was to open an infirmary exclusively for the homeless and under-housed. This innovative solution is just one of the many stories celebrated in Beyond Barriers: Photographs from the frontlines of health, on display at the Canadian Public Health Association’s Centenary conference.
Join us at the reception which will feature remarks from leading frontline health practitioners and will be held on:
Monday, June 14, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
PLEASE NOTE: A limited number of invitations are available for members of the public to view the exhibit and attend a special reception taking place at the Canadian Public Health Association Centenary Conference. Be sure to RSVP to email@example.com for an opportunity to attend this special event.
The exhibit is presented by AstraZeneca Canada’s Frontline Health Program, which supports the work of the dedicated health professionals who serve Canada’s most vulnerable populations.
